The Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market Opening Day!

The Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market officially kicked off its fourth season on June 11th! We were so excited to welcome back our returning vendors and customers, as well as some new faces. This season, the market has five food vendors including Norz Hill Farm, Snapping Turtle Farms, Isles Inc., Franca Bakery, and Local 130 Seafood.  Kids and teens were able to enjoy a delicious and healthy dinner and play games while their parents and families shopped for fresh produce, herbs, honey, meat, eggs, bread, seafood, and more! Although we have had some hot and sunny Mondays, that has not stopped the market from being a fun place to come shop, ride bikes, and connect with other community members. Come join us on Mondays from 1:00 to 6:00 for shopping, dancing, dinner, and fun! Make sure to take advantage of our matching dollars incentives when shopping with SNAP/EBT, WIC, FMNP, & SFMNP. While visiting, make sure to stop by our health services which include blood pressure screenings, medication counseling, and insurance information. We’ll see you on Monday!
