It’s officially summer in Florida and that means filling your farmer’s market basket with summertime favorites like peppers, squash, eggplant, okra, Malabar spinach and if you are a little south, all the tropical fruits! With Feeding Florida's Fresh Access Bucks you can enjoy fresh Florida produce all year around.
Check out some of our favorite seasonal calendars to find what is in season near you:
We are lucky to have a year around growing season here but even Florida farmers have to take a little break when the bugs and heat are winning in the fields. For this reason, many farms and farmers markets have adjusted schedules or close during the summer months. And since summer also means hurricane season, last minute closures and market cancellations can happen.
You can always refer to our Fresh Access Bucks Locations Map for information on individual location hours. Confirm up-to-date information on market or outlet’s website or social media. And don’t forget that your Fresh Access Bucks tokens don’t expire so you can double your SNAP dollar all year around too!
