New Bedford Farmers Markets
The New Bedford Farmers Market provides New Bedford’s diverse residents with access to local produce and foods, and it provides local farmers with a direct connection to customers. Our markets serve as a community gathering space where farmers and local food producers can connect with the community- we are a big market family!
Nearly 30% of people in New Bedford, including seniors, children, single mothers, working individuals and parents rely on SNAP benefits to feed themselves and their family. Part of our missions is to provide local food to all people, which is why we accept many different forms on payment- EBT/SNAP/HIP, Debit/Credit, Cash, WIC/Senior Coupons. By supporting the New Bedford Farmers Market, you are also ensuring SNAP recipients can access the state’s new Healthy Incentives Program which lets them earn more SNAP dollars when they purchase produce from local farmers at the farmers market.
