Celebrate National Farmers Market Week

Farmers markets help strengthen communities by making healthy foods more affordable and accessible. Most farmers markets in Colorado accept SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits, and many even offer “double vouchers” and other incentives—see Denver Urban Gardens, The Local Farmacy Rx program - Montrose and Olathe, and Alamosa Farmers Market for just a few great examples. With National Farmers Market Week kicking off August 2, it's a great time to learn more about how to increase healthy food access in your community. Get started on our Food Systems page and share with us on Facebook to keep the local food movement going strong in Colorado!
