Free produce market opens in Youngstown - WKBN

Glenwood Fresh Market celebrated a soft opening Tuesday as it prepares to serve thousands in the Valley.

The nutrition incentive program offers free fresh produce to families who qualify for the program. Each family will receive $25 per household member to spend in the market.

“I have some families that are getting as much as $185 a month to spend. It’s been pretty amazing,” said Susan Payton, Glenwood Fresh Market manager.

Payton says the items are priced at wholesale prices, so they are very affordable, and the $25 per person will go a long way.

The market also has some pantry items and some bonus items that won’t count toward the monthly allotment.
