Thanks to a MetroWest Emergency Relief Fund grant from the Foundation for MetroWest, the Ashland Farmers Market is offering a generous $25 SNAP match (up from $20) for all SNAP shoppers each week. In addition, SNAP recipients can receive free freshly picked fruits and vegetables from two farms at the market under the Massachusetts Healthy Incentives Program (HIP).
Making sure that everyone has access to fresh, local food is an important part of the Ashland Farmers Market mission.
The SNAP match increase started on Saturday, August 15, and will continue through October 10 or until the funds are exhausted. Please help to spread the word. You can access flyers below.
