About

The 5 Healthy Towns farmers markets (Chelsea, Grass Lake, Dexter, Stockbridge and Manchester) are expanding our food assistance programs, aimed at making our markets’ products more affordable to those with lower income. Our goal is to be able to accept SNAP/bridge cards at most of the markets, and then implement Double Up Food Bucks - a program that double’s a SNAP participant’s money for FREE to spend at the farmers market on fruits and vegetables. WE NEED HELP to make this possible. We are looking for a volunteer available every week or every other week throughout the summer who would be able to assist with these programs during market on Tuesday afternoons, 2-6 pm. Please contact Stephanie at (616) 734-9123 or at coordinator@chelseafarmersmkt.org if interested.
