On July 2nd, 2022, the farmers made a dream come true with the launch of the PFC Farmers Market at 130 Grant Street in the M&T Bank parking lot. Every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. from July 2nd through October 15th, the market brought fresh and affordable food to the diverse neighborhood, which is home to many refugee and immigrant communities. From African maize to Liberian bitter ball, the market offered a wide variety of culturally relevant foods that are often difficult to find. Not only did it benefit the local food system, it also helped increase income for our farmers. The market was such a success that many of our farmers have expressed a desire to continue and even expand it.
All PFC farmer’s market vendors will accept cash and SNAP/Food Stamps benefits. Our vendors also participate in the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNNP), which provides eligible low-income seniors and families receiving WIC benefits with $4 checks to purchase fresh, locally grown vegetables, fruits, and cut herbs. Ask us about our Double Up Food Bucks Program for SNAP shoppers.
