CITYCENTER DANBURY with The Danbury Farmers’ Market Community Collaborative opens
City Center Danbury’s Farmers’ Market
Friday, June 29 & every Friday through October 26
10 am - 4 pm at Kennedy Park
Envision fresh produce, homemade baked goods, hard shell clams, wood fired pizza and more, and you’ll find yourself on a Friday at Kennedy Park & Main where CityCenter Danbury’s Farmers’ Market will be abuzz with energy focused on healthy living and a tonnage of community dialogue. Opening on Friday, June 29th at 10 am (official welcomes take place at 11 am), the Farmers’ Market will run from from 10 am to 4 pm every Friday through October 26th.
With a recent grant of $15,000 from the Fairfield County Community Foundation ($5,000 over last year), the Better Food for Better Health program will be able to expand, grow, and secure its significant services to seniors, women, infants, and children through the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program vouchers (FMNP) and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps. By using a market coin system, DFMCC doubles the value of purchases, with up to $6 matched each market day. In a survey, 86% of those receiving the match were eating more fruits and vegetables since participating in the program.
HARTransit provides return bus passes for program participants to access the Market’s fresh foods, blood pressure and diabetes testing will be available, and to be sure your healthy meal is complete, Roses for Autism will set the table in splendid color.
Get ready...the farmer's market set to open soon!
