Summer may be winding down but Oklahoma farmers markets are open to their serve communities through the fall harvest.

Oklahoma has over 40 farmers markets accepting Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Senior Farmers Market benefits across the state, including the Think Ability Duncan Farmers Market. Snap-accepting farmers markets help more families have access to fresh quality food. To find your nearest SNAP-accepting farmers market visit onieproject.org/farmersmarkets.

“By welcoming SNAP benefits, farmers markets are helping all Oklahomans have access to high-quality, locally-grown food. You can trust the food will last longer when it comes straight from the farm to your kitchen,” states Oklahoma Nutrition Information and Education (ONIE) Project’s Community Outreach Coordinator Jade Owen.

Enjoy quality, locally-grown produce at the Think Ability Duncan Farmers Market on Sunday, Aug. 18 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 2301 West Beech Duncan, OK 73533. There will be a family-friendly event including a painting with veggies activity, free games for kids, free backpacks with school supplies for school-age children while supplies last and the best produce and food around.
