Did you know we accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits so customers can purchase fresh produce and locally made products at our market? To use SNAP benefits, customers can swipe their EBT cards at our Maryland Market Money table. We will charge the card for any amount requested in exchange for tokens that can be spent with eligible vendors.  Through the Maryland Market Money program, the market will also match up to $30 in SNAP benefits spent at the market – so a $10 charge on a customer’s EBT card will give them $20 to spend!  Many of our vendors also accept Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks. Checks can be used to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, cut herbs, and honey. These checks are spent directly with vendors who are registered to accept the checks as payment, and then those vendors will write the customer a receipt. If the customer brings the receipt to the market table, we will match up to $10 in FMNP spending with additional Maryland Market Money tokens. Bringing a $10 FMNP check to the market can allow a customer to spend $20!

The College Park Community Food Bank and Hollywood farmers market are partnering on a canned food drive. Bring your unexpired canned goods to the market and leave them at the market management tent. Look for the tall white bag with the College Park Community Food Bank logo on it.

This week John is still out in Idaho for the National Fiddle Championships where he is the backup guitarist of choice by 60% of the contest fiddlers!  Which means I will have the pleasure of another week of picking with Mike Lessin.  For those of you who don’t know, Mike is one of the area’s most acclaimed guitarists – fresh off an all-star gig this week with the Capitol Area’s finest musicians – Mike is the lead guitar player for Late As Usual and Zydeco Jed – both well-known local bands you can catch most any weekend at the bigger venues around town.  Support your local musicians!  We will see you Saturday morning! Rumor has it Patrick O’Donnell and his fiddle may be there for a set: Patrick is a Peabody-trained violinist who mostly plays jazz these days, it’s an honor to have him sit in with us.

See you tomorrow!
