Help with Groceries: How would you like to maximize your money for groceries each month and have the opportunity to buy healthy, locally grown fruits and vegetables? If you would like to learn more about SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and see if you or someone you love can access these great benefits stop by the Community Food Advocates table between 10am and 2pm during any Meet Me at the Farmers’ Market events. Screening and enrollment is a “snap” and you could be doubling your money in no time.

“Meet Me at the Farmers’ Market is a new program enabling the Nashville Farmers’ Market to connect the community with educational programming and health and wellness resources while showcasing all that the Market has to offer,” said Tasha Kennard, Executive Director of the Nashville Farmers’ Market. “The event series is free and open to the public and we invite the community to attend on the second Wednesday of each month.”
