Benton Harbor Farmers Market opens Wednesday
The Benton Harbor Farmers Market opens for the season Wednesday, July 6.
The market is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Wednesday at the Dwight P. Mitchell City Center Park in downtown Benton Harbor.
The market accepts Bridge Cards (EBT), Senior Project FRESH, and WIC Project FRESH coupons. For another year in a row, the market will also offer people with Bridge Cards an opportunity to double their spending power with the Double Up Food Bucks program.
“There’s no better way to strengthen our local community than to shop and eat locally,” Nicki Britten, Deputy Health Officer at the Berrien County Health Department said in a press release. “By visiting the Benton Harbor Farmers Market, residents are supporting our local farmers, our economy, and our community as well as getting healthy and fresh food for themselves and their families.”
The Benton Harbor Farmers Market is operated by the Berrien County Health Department and supported by grant funding from Be Healthy Berrien through the United Way of Southwest Michigan.
The market is open through September.
