|T-shirt sales to benefit 4MRPark|
Plus, don't forget to salivate over all the other fresh, local produce and herbs (greens, strawberries, asparagus, and many other items that are now in season!), made-to-order crepes and smoothies, baked goods, grass-fed beef, heritage chicken eggs, and a host of other goodies.
And don't forget our artisans. Uncommon Knits makes excellent quality hand woven and sewn products, and we may have one or two other TBD artisan vendors this weekend!
Here is who you'll find at 4MRMarket this week:
4MRMarket officially launched the SNAP/EBT program this month week for market purchases. In a collaborative project with the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria and Inova Health System, SNAP participants are now able to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables and other goods at the farmers market. As part of this project, Inova is sponsoring a "Double Dollar" program that doubles the first $10 SNAP participants spend at the market. 4MRMarket is the first farmers’ market in Northern Virginia to accept SNAP.
Four Mile Run Market is now selling t-shirts in many sizes and colors - proceeds go towards improving Four Mile Run Park and keeping the market going strong. Ask a market manager if you'd like to make a great local fashion statement.
Please support your volunteer-run neighborhood farmers market. We can't do it without neighborhood support! Also, volunteers are always welcome to help find musicians to play the market and to help book the community tent with City agencies, non-profits, etc.
