The Care1st Avondale Resource Center has launched a farmers market, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Wednesday through October 30.
The farmers market will offer the community fresh, locally-grown produce and agricultural based products. Seasonal items will include peaches, plums, watermelons, cantaloupe, onions, garlic, cucumbers, potatoes, leafy vegetables, carrots and tomatoes.
The market operates rain or shine, and is open to all. Cash, debit and credit, WIC and Snap benefits are accepted. Adelante WIC FMNP vouchers will be issued on site for those who are eligible. Food stamp participants’ dollars are doubled at the farmers market and Adelante WIC is present to give vouchers for free produce to WIC clients.
The farmers market is made possible through a partnership between The University of Arizona Maricopa County Cooperative Extension, Arizona Community Farmers’ Markets and Adelante Healthcare WIC.
For more information about the market, call 623-333-2703. The Care1st Avondale Resource Center is located at 328 W. Western Avenue in Avondale.
