Duvall Famers Market Opening Day and Mother's Day


Cherry Valley Elementary Choir and Band will be performing at 4:15 to help celebrate Opening Day of the Duvall Famers Market for 2016.

This year opening day falls on the Thursday before Mothers day so pick up flowers from our flower vendors or a lovely gift from one of our crafters for your favorite moms!

FARMERS MARKET FOOD PROGRAMS


Duvall Farmers Market is committed to providing access to fresh local healthy food to all members of the community, regardless of income.

The market accepts EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) cards, formerly known as Food Stamps. EBT may be used to purchase fresh or processed food, but not prepared, ready to eat, served food, in compliance with federal regulations. To utilize EBT, market patrons come to the market information booth at the base of the steps to have their card scanned in exchange for tokens. The tokens may then be used with any vendor with eligible products. This system allows the market to absorb the administrative costs of providing EBT instead of passing the cost on to farmers and other vendors.

To increase access to fresh produce, Duvall Farmers Market participates in the Fresh Bucks Program, which matches the first $10 of EBT used on produce. This applies only to produce, not processed or prepared foods. Fresh Bucks will be given by request when the EBT card is scanned to obtain tokens. Fresh Bucks are now financed through a USDA program whose goal is to increase access to fresh foods.

We also include in our matching program WIC and Senior FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Program) checks. This was initiated last year on a trial basis. WIC and Senior FMNP checks can only be used with farmers who are certified to take them, and can only be used for fresh produce, in compliance with federal regulations. Check holders can have their checks exchanged at the market information booth for a coupon worth double the value of the check. The matching coupons must be spent at FMNP certified farmers at the Duvall Farmers Market.

We are appreciative of an anonymous donor who has generously committed to fund the WIC and Senior FMNP matching program this year.

Throughout the market are crates for collecting donations of fresh food for the Food Pantry at Holy Innocents Catholic Church in Duvall.  The farmers are very generous with donations of produce, and we encourage the market patrons to contribute as well. Holy Innocents Church has sponsored a food pantry for the past two decades.  Anyone who asks for help is given assistance. Leftover food is taken to the St. Vincent de Paul store in Monroe where it is cooked into hot meals and served to low income individuals and families. Food Pantry clients come primarily from Duvall, Monroe and Carnation.  Basic food and produce is provided as available, as well as non-food items such as toiletries, toilet paper and diapers. There is also an area with clothing, household items, toys and books from which people are welcome to take as needed.
