The harvest is in. Rich eggplant for that lasagna you’ve planned. Pumpkins for the porch and the stew. Berries for jam and jellies. And CityCenter Danbury’s Farmers’ Market will continue from 10am to 4pm every Friday through October 26 at Kennedy Park (the Kennedy Avenue bus station area, which bisects Main Street). Everything is “Connecticut Grown”, and you couldn’t find a more family friendly place to share what’s healthy and bring it to the kitchen table.

 

With a grant from the Fairfield County Community Foundation, the Better Food for Better Health program has expanded its services to seniors, women, infants, and children through the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program vouchers (FMNP) and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps. By using a market coin system, DFMCC doubles the value of purchases, with up to $6 matched each market day.

 

HARTransit provides return bus passes for program participants to access the Market’s fresh foods. Blood pressure and diabetes testing is often available, and Roses for Autism makes Farmers’ Day color-full with their flower arrangements. For more information, call CityCenter Danbury at (203)792-1711.
