Spring is here, we think! Seedlings are beginning to appear at Market along with all those other fresh, locally grown and produced goods you’ve come to expect, every Friday, 9 to 1 in the yard at Waterfall Arts, 256 High Street, Belfast Maine.
Participants in this program earn a one-dollar Harvest Buck voucher for each dollar they spend at market on qualified healthy food. Vouchers may be redeemed toward purchase of vegetables and fruits at the market any time throughout the year, and food seedlings in spring!
The Maine Harvest Bucks nutrition incentive program rewards participants for choosing to shop locally and extends federal nutrition supplement funds by encouraging purchase and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. The program is managed by volunteers and receives funding from philanthropies. The program runs through March 2019. More information can be found at maineharvestbucks.org. Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets, mainefarmersmarkets.org, has information on using EBT/SNAP at farmers’ markets statewide.
