Our goal in launching the tours is to make farmers’ markets more inviting and welcoming to all.

Objectives for the tours include:

  • familiarize people with how to use their EBT cards and incentives at markets
  • connect new customers with market staff and new farmers
  • increase awareness about resources and ideas for cooking and eating with the seasons
  • tips on making your market dollars go further
