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 select Fairfax County Farmers Markets 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, Britepaths has 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 Farmers Markets

Britepaths has been partnering since 2021 with the Fairfax County Park Authority, FRESHFARM and Local Environmental Agriculture Project (LEAP) to help offer SNAP/EBT at select Fairfax County Farmers Markets. Our volunteers staff tables at the Wakefield Farmers Market each Wednesday afternoon and the Annandale Farmers Market each Thursday morning during the market season to offer community members who use SNAP/EBT benefits the opportunity to have their benefits matched so they can shop for fresh produce. More information coming soon on our 2024 volunteer needs.

Thank You to Our 2023 Our Daily Veggies Vendors!

We are grateful to our participating 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.
