I've been awaiting the opening of our summer farmers market, which comes with the first Sunday of June... only to check their webpage this morning to find out that they've pushed it back to July this year! It's been a rough growing season here in Rhode Island, but I didn't expect it to affect the market that much!
Most markets now accept food stamps, and a lot I've come across offer bonuses [here, I get $2 back for every $5 I spend; the Evanston suburb of Chicago gives you fifty cents for every dollar spent]. It's a great way for us to be able to afford the slightly higher prices of the market so we can continue to eat healthily despite other limitations.
