Fresh Local Food is the Best Last-Minute Gift and a Boost to a Healthy New Year


Grand Lake Farmers’ Market fan Megan Hertzler’s Instagram gallery of greats (excerpts above) shows how a farmer’s market gift certificate or Bounty Box could be your perfect last-minute pick for your precious family, friends, and self.

Did you know that most farmers’ markets sell gift cards?

Some have truly giftable options like the Bounty Box from the Agricultural Institute of Marin, which runs three East Bay markets. When you purchase a box filled with fresh fruit and veggies directly, it helps local farmers and boosts organizational missions in support of our regional food system.

The$30 Bounty Box is available for curbside pickup at some markets in the East Bay, San Francisco, and Marin. CalFresh/EBT users receive a 50% discount on each box, and gift cards are also available here.
