You have ony two more weeks to shop at the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market. Stop by between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday November 5 and 12 to experience a cornucopia of local, fresh produce! And, yes, the market vendors accept SNAP, EBT (Bridge Cards) and WIC!
On Nov. 5, community partner The Great Start Collaborative will be on hand to share resrouces and information. Great Start’s goal is: “Every young child in Kent County will enter kindergarten healthy and ready to succeed in school and life.”
The market hopes to continue to offer monthly opportunity to purchase bulk whole foods, e.g. dry beans, whole grain flours, nuts and seeds, pasta, rice and more (SNAP/Bridge Card accepted for purchase). Items are ordered from Country Life Natural Foods, a supplier to Michigan food co-ops. View the entire PDF Catalog here. If you’d like to place an order, email it to SEAFM@OKTjustice.org by Dec. 5. Pay at the pick-up (date TBD) at Garfield Park Lodge, 334 Burton St. SE 49507.
