FRANKLIN, NH- Franklin Regional Hospital (FRH) is excited to once again host a weekly Summer Farmer’s Market in collaboration with the Franklin Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Coalition.
Join local vendors on the FRH lawn every Tuesday afternoon from 3:00-6:00 pm, beginning June 3, through the summer season. Encouraging a healthy lifestyle is the focus of the market, and shoppers will enjoy locally-grown produce and other fresh local food options.
Most vendors will accept cash or check, and the market accepts SNAP benefits via an EBT payment system on site. The use of SNAP is made possible through a grant in cooperation with the Caring Community Network of the Twin Rivers (CCNTR). Promotional SNAP programs include, ‘Double SNAP Dollars,’ up to five dollars each week. Purchase $5 of food with your SNAP card, and receive an additional $5 in market food items free.
Eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, and lean protein sources is a great way to stay healthy. Why not make Franklin Farmer’s Market part of your weekly routine this summer.
