Farmers Market Initiatives

 

Britepaths has two initiatives to offer greater access to fresh, healthy foods to community members who are experiencing food insecurity. Our Daily Veggies farmers market vouchers and our SNAP/EBT Program at the Annandale Farmers Market are a win-win for our community, providing more fresh produce to our families while giving business to local farms and producers.

Our Daily Veggies

Since 2010, we have been providing Our Daily Veggies Farmers Market Vouchers to our clients from May through November so they can purchase fresh produce and protein products from participating vendors at Fairfax County area Farmers Markets. We love this opportunity to supplement the food support we provide our clients while also supporting local producers. Many of our participating vendors (listed below) have been with us from the program's beginning.

SNAP/EBT at the Annandale Farmers Market

Britepaths is partnering with the Fairfax County Park Authority, FRESHFARM and Local Environmental Agriculture Project (LEAP) to staff a table at the Annandale Farmers Market each Thursday morning during the market season that offers community members who use SNAP/EBT benefits the opportunity to maximize their benefits to shop for fresh produce.

We are grateful to our participating 2022 Our Daily Veggies Vendors whose stands at the Fairfax County Farmers Markets and the Fairfax Community Farmers' Market offer our families the opportunity to purchase fresh produce and protein products. If you shop at these markets, please support them! Several have CSAs or pre-order options.
