We’re excited to explore new ways Ohio Directions Card users can access fresh local food this fall. Veggie SNAPS are available in these new places beginning this week:
Canal Market District
The newest market in Fairfield county is distributing Veggie SNAPS each Tuesday and Friday in September. Visit the open air market in renovated historic Newark from 4-7 pm to purchase from 60+ vendors. Read more about where to park and what you’ll experience at the Canal Market District.
Fresh Foods Here
Little’s IGA, United Way of Central Ohio, and Veggie SNAPS are combining efforts to support fresh foods at corner stores. In this pilot, shoppers can visit Little’s IGA on Parsons Friday September 2 and Friday October 7 to shop for fruits and vegetables using their EBT card and receive a coupon for matching quantity of fruits and vegetables to spend during the month.
GRO Mobile Farm Stand
The Great River Organics Cooperative will operate mobile farm stand at the Broad Street Food Pantry. Visit the pantry at Broad Street Presbyterian Church between 3 pm – 6 pm on Tuesdays from September 6- November 15 to buy fresh greens, root vegetables, cabbages, tomatoes, and more.
