TIFFIN, OHIO – July 21, 2022 - Local produce is in the heat of its season and the market bank programs continue to make the fresh food accessible to all demographics.

Customers can expect delicious fresh produce, artisan baked treats, hand crafted goods, a great time, and the use of your SNAP benefits and many other forms of payment. The Tiffin Seneca Farmers Market Bank allows customers to shop their favorite vendors with their SNAP/EBT cards, WIC Farmers Market Vouchers, Senior Farmers Market Vouchers, and credit cards, but that’s not all. They also provide Produce Perks, a fruit and vegetable incentive program that provides a $25 match on SNAP/EBT and P-EBT purchases. This means that any amount spent with SNAP/EBT or P-EBT, up to $25, will be matched dollar for dollar.

This week the Seneca County General Health District will be at the market to hand out WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons to those that qualify at the farmers market this weekend! Ohio WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) provides women and children with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from farmers' markets and farm stands.

“Fruits and veggies are an important part of a healthy diet and the Farmers’ Market has the freshest and tastiest. The WIC Program will distribute Farmers' Market Nutrition Program Coupons to WIC Participants at the Market on July 23rd and this year the dollar value has increased to $30 per participant,” said Trisha Kahler, RD,LD.

The 2022 season of the Tiffin Seneca Farmers Market continues this Saturday, July 23, 9am-1pm. The vendors for this week includes: Baked By Bells, Bella Cuisine, Countryside Acres, Clay Hill Organic, Dick and Barb’s Produce, Flo’s Homemade Pies, Franciscan Earth Literacy Center, Friends of the Tiffin Seneca Public Library, Freeze Dried Ohio, Hopes Landing, I Love Cupcakes, Heiser Cattle Company, Me and the Boys, Miss Cindy’s Cookies, Project Noelle, Put Your Name on it, Riehm Produce Farm, Roseleaf Flowers, The Tiffin Elks, and Windy Hill Berries.
