Since October of 2017, the High Springs Farmers Market has helped feed the community with just over $13,000 in incentive tokens (free green tokens that are doubled when a SNAP recipient runs their card for yellow tokens), thanks to the Fresh Access Bucks program. Since January of this year, customers have received approximately $6,000 in free tokens. Our mission is to give our customers access to affordable, healthy foods. This in turn will increase their fruit & vegetable consumption, while increasing local economies. Thank you for supporting our local farmers market!
