SATURDAY, JULY 21

NEW & NOTABLE THIS WEEK

The warm weather has pushed stone fruit out a little early, you can find peaches at Mead Orchards. And as you enjoy your first summer peach relish in the fact that it is still July!

This week we welcome NEW vendor The Peanut Principle offering gourmet nut butters. 

Monthly vendors Hudson River Apiaries and MOMO Dressing are at the TaSH this week so buy enough to last you a few weeks.  

Baked with Jake returns with delicious hand made cookies. For something fun try The Almost "Everything" Cookie.  

Good news alert! A few weeks ago, it was announced that the technology company that enables SNAP benefits to be dispersed at farmers markets would close down operations at the end of July.  This would be of course devastating to the millions of SNAP beneficiaries in New York State alone and also gravely impact the farming community. SNAP benefits often go very far at farmers markets! The TaSH, by example, DOUBLES SNAP benefits up to $40 thanks to generous grant support to its food assistance programs. Today we are thrilled to learn that the National Association of Farmers Markets Nutrition Programs is stepping in to stave off the shutdown, meaning SNAP customers will still be able to use their benefits at our market in the near term. We'll continue to keep our customers updated on this issue in the near future.
