Food Assistance Accepted at Youngstown, Warren, Howland Farmer's Markets - WFMJ

Valley residents receiving public assistance to put groceries on the table have access to fresh food at several area farmer's markets this summer.

A list of farmer's markets accepting SNAP, EBT, or the Ohio Direction Card published by the state Office of Family Assistance includes two markets in Trumbull County and one in Mahoning County. Customers can shop at farmers' markets in Youngstown, Warren, and Howland for a healthier alternative of fresh, wholesome, locally grown foods. The Downtown Youngstown Farmers Market at the B&O Station on Mahoning Ave. is open to the public once per month. The market is an on-going partnership between the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) and Mercy Health - Youngstown. Individuals using SNAP can "double-up" their produce purchase up to $30. The first market will take place on June 13, 2018, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at the B&O Station located at 530 Mahoning Ave. in Youngstown and will happen the second Wednesday of each month from June through October.
