Farm Stand Project
This project began in 1993 with a mission to make fresh produce more readily available in low-income neighborhoods traditionally underserved by full-service grocery stores. In addition to accepting cash, our Farm Stands accept public program benefits such as FMNP and SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps). The Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) issues checks to income-qualified seniors and WIC families which can only be used to purchase produce at certified Farmers’ Markets and, through USDA authorization, our Farm Stands.
Farm Stand vs. Farmers’ Market
Unlike Farmers’ Markets where the farmer comes to the market to sell, we go to the farmers and purchase produce and then deliver it to the Farm Stands. The Food Bank complements the produce for sale with nutrition education to encourage healthy eating, including monthly cooking demonstrations and samplings with recipes using local produce. You can search for recipes with our Recipe Rainbow.
