This Week at the Market




Music at the Market

This week's featured group is The Kitsap County Ramblers! Self-described as “electrified porch music,” The KC Ramblers trio plays an eclectic collection of both covers and original tunes with a down-home, organic, bluesy vibe. Come for the farmers, stay for the music!


A huge thank you to the Bremerton Office Machine Company for sponsoring this program. See you at the market!


 


Ukulele at the Market

Ever wanted to play the ukulele? Can you play a little and need some help? Want to show off your mad ukulele skills?

Kitsap Ukulele Peace Revival with Aaron McFarland and Hannah Dawn will be at the market from 5pm to 7pm. They will be in the grassy area behind Viking Ice Cream. Come check it out!

Nutrition Programs at the Market

Did you receive a Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) benefits card? Does your family receive WIC and you've been told you can use it at the farmers market? What about SNAP/EBT and P-EBT benefits cards? Are you confused about how to use it all? Then visit the Market Info booth in the middle of the Bremerton Community Farmers Market! We will show you how all of these benefits can get fresh food on your table.


SFMNP benefits can be used at the following vendors: Davis Farm, Forest Frog Farms, and Fuentes Fresh Farm. New farms may be added during the remainder of the season, be sure and check weekly. Your benefits are good through the end of September and can be used at other markets. These benefits are only added to your card once in the amount of $80. Please stop by the Market Info booth if you haven't already applied for these benefits...we have mail in applications. You can also contact Meals On Wheels.


WIC/FMNP and WIC/CVB benefits can be used at the following vendors: Davis Farm, Forest Frog Farms, and Fuentes Fresh Farm. New farms may be added during the remainder of the season, be sure and check weekly. WIC/CVB benefits are automatically added to your card and you are probably familiar with using these in the grocery store. Now your CVB benefits can be used at local farmers markets like ours, are added monthly, and can be used throughout the season. The amount of benefits received for this program is determined by your specific situation.


WIC/FMNP benefits are not added automatically to your card, and you must ask for them at your WIC office. These benefits are added to your card once, and the amount received for this program is determined by your specific situation.


Both WIC programs are used at the vendors booth, no need to do anything with your card at the Market Info booth. These programs require the use of a QR code available through your WIC Shopper App. To see if you are eligible for WIC, please visit Kitsap Community Resources.


SNAP/EBT and P-EBT benefits can also be used at farmers markets, and markets will match up to $25 with SNAP Market Match coupons. Visit the Market Info booth and tell us you’d like to use SNAP Market Match. We'll swipe your EBT/P-EBT card in the amount you want to spend, and you'll receive EBT $1 market tokens plus up to $25 in market match coupons. The tokens can be spent on a variety of eligible food items and can only be used at the Bremerton Community Farmers Market. The coupons can be spent on any of the following: fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, mushrooms, fresh herbs (not dried), and seeds and plants that produce food (for example, tomato seeds or tomato plants). All of our farm vendors accept SNAP Market Match for qualifying items! The SNAP MM coupons can be used at participating farmers markets around the state. You may complete an online application for SNAP/EBT benefits by using the WashingtonConnection.org website or apply by phone at 877-501-2233 or by visiting your local Community Services Office.
