What are the Market hours?
To be determined
Do you accept SNAP/EBT?
Yes! We are the only farmers market in Cole County that accepts SNAP/EBT benefits to provide fresh and local food for everyone! We use a token system for customers so they can be exchanged at individual vendors for eligible food.
What about WIC?
While our vendor products don’t generally meet the stricter food guidelines of WIC , we have a dollar matching program for WIC beneficiaries. Present your WIC id folder to the market booth and $10 of your own, personal money to buy tokens and we will match it with $10 of additional tokens for you to spend at the market, doubling your buying power for fresh, local food.
How local is the food I am buying ?
Most members will reside, grow, and/or make their products in Cole County or a county adjacent to Cole County. Some exceptions may be made to get enough desirable food into the Market.
How do I know my food is safe?
Short answer………Know your farmer! However, all vendors are required to be compliant with the health code in Jefferson City and Cole County, just like any other food store. This is a responsibility that all members take seriously. Indeed, this is the food the farmers eat and also use to feed their own families!
