Farmer’s Market Receives Grant
Apr 29, 2015 01:16AM
The Venice Farmer’s Market will receive up to $30,000 over three years to maintain its Fresh Access Bucks program for SNAP (Food Stamp) recipients through the Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive Program.
This is the second grant in less than a year received by VFM that enables local SNAP recipients to purchase fresh, local produce. Fresh Access Bucks increases the purchasing power of SNAP participants by providing a one-to-one match for Florida-grown fruits and vegetables.
The Venice Farmer’s Market is open on Saturday mornings. Check the website for current times.
Location: Tampa Ave. between Nokomis & Nausau Ave., Venice. For more information, visit TheVeniceFarmersMarket.com.
