This year’s 74 participating households each receive $44 of vouchers to spend at the Adams County Farmers Market Association markets each month from June to September. They are also invited to participate in as many activities they can from a calendar full of events such as cooking and gardening classes, farm tours, hikes, a photography project and yoga.
Thanks to the community sponsors and dedicated farmers/vendors, local families are able to enjoy fresh, locally grown foods and participate in learning and community-building activities.
