Tuesday Market- July 31, 2018!

 



 

 

Some great news came from Boston last week when the state budget was passed, including $4 million in funding for HIP (Healthy Incentives Program) for the next fiscal year! This is wonderful news for Massachusetts SNAP recipients who have gotten used to buying fruits and vegetables from local farms with the additional HIP money since the program began last year. It’s also great news for farmers who have seen a big increase in sales since HIP began. In the first half of the Tuesday Market season our customers have already purchased just about $10,000 in fruits and vegetables using the HIP benefit at the market! This week another HIP vendor joins the fold, Apex Orchard is returning this week and for the rest of the season.

It’s going to be another beautiful, quintessential summer Tuesday Market this week! Nice weather, produce galore, cold drinks, music starting at 4pm and so much more! See you there!

 

 

 

We asked the adorable child who wrote “I love you” in chalk at the market today to tell us who she wrote it for. She said, “It’s for everyone!”
Apex Orchard makes their return to the market this week. They’ll have peaches and apricots (pictured). Apex   now accepts SNAP/HIP too!
Corn can be found at Red Fire Farm!
