PAY IT FORWARD

As part of our efforts to increase food accessibility, we are also excited to offer our Pay it Forward program! We recognize that income can pose a significant barrier to shopping at farmers' markets, and want to do our best to allow everyone the opportunity to shop at the market. 

We believe that everyone should be able to access healthy, nutritious and delicious, locally produced foods, regardless of income. To help those for whom income poses a barrier to shopping at the market, we will have red tokens worth $5 available at our Pay it Forward board. These tokens can be used no questions asked at any one of our participating vendors. There will be a list of participating vendors available at the Pay it Forward sign, and vendors will also have a sign identifying them at their booth. 

 

Each $5 token represents a donation from one of our generous community members. If you would like to donate to keep this program running, please follow the link below!
