Mt. Vernon Farmers’ Market and partners are offering Skagit Cooks!, a series of demonstrations by guest chefs, educational activities for children, and bilingual recipes and nutrition information. Access will also be expanded by offering a second mid-week market at Skagit Valley Hospital starting in July. Additionally, several programs to support low income shoppers are being added:
The Farmers’ Market is working closely with the Skagit County Community Action Agency to increase awareness of these new programs. Information is also being made available in brochures and has been featured by several local media sources.
Mount Vernon Farmers Market, Skagit Valley Hospital/Mount Vernon Healthy Communities Project, Skagit County Community Action Agency, Children's Museum of Skagit County, Skagit Valley Food Co-op, Friends of Skagit County. Funding is provided by Projects for Public Spaces and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
Use of Quest cards will be monitored to assess whether accepting the cards increases access for low income shoppers.
