Wondering What's in Season?

Thanks to the folks at CUESA for their very useful Seasonality Charts for VEGETABLES and FRUITS & NUTS, SEAFOOD, and FLOWERS!

What are EBT, WIC, MM, and VRx?

EBT: Most farmers’ markets offer Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT), electronic system for the food stamp program.

MM: Market Match provides EBT customers token or voucher incentives to shop at farmers’ markets and spend their federal benefits on fresh fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Available seasonally. Contact individual organizations for details.

WIC: The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children serves to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk, by providing nutritious foods to supplement their diet.

VRx: The VeggieRx program by Fresh Approach offers classes, advice, and vouchers for fresh produce. freshapproach.org
