As a result of a grant from the Colorado Farmers Market Association, Golden’s market is going to be one of only a handful of Colorado farmers’ markets that will be able to participate in the SNAP - Federal EBT/Food Stamp program. The market will accept the food stamp card for market dollars that can be spent on eligible items - namely, non-prepared foods intended to be eaten at home and seeds and plants with which to grow food. The cash program will also be accepted at the market.
In addition, the wireless machine at the market can also accept debit cards. Market managers will offer $5.00 increments of Market Bucks to be spent at the market like cash.
The Golden Farmers' Market will be bringing in Master Gardeners from the Jefferson County Cooperative Extension office to do weekly demos and projects. Weekly topics will include: container vegetables, kids’ terrarium making, hanging baskets, rock gardening, and forcing bulbs. They will also offer tips and general gardening information.
Be sure to watch for the signs and flags that show the way to the market location in the parking lot by the Golden Library. Stop by and enjoy all that this year’s farmers’ market has to offer.
