Summer is here! The weather is warming up and we’re starting to head down to the beach to soak up sun and have fun. Summer is a great time to experiment with new food, eat fresh , and serve up something sweet, like fruit! We’ve put together a list of local Farmer’s Markets in Nassau & Suffolk Counties where you can find fresh produce like lettuce, tomatoes, corn, peaches, strawberries, apples, and more. The list goes on and on.
Many of these markets accept EBT (SNAP) and Fresh Connect Coupons (FCC), so if you receive these benefits, you can use them to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables for you and your family. If you are not currently receiving help from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), but would like to know more, you can find that information here. Please take a look at the list below and come out to support local farmers and to buy some delicious, healthy food!
