The market accepts food stamps as part of the state’s Double Up Program – which helps families on food stamps stretch those dollars further. Organizers say it’s a great way to bring together the local community. “Eight years ago, we decided one of the things we wanted to do is create a farmer’s market that would help reunite the community and get people to know each other and enjoy each other again,” said Darcy Bushnell, a board member with Mile-Hi Market.
The market takes place each Sunday at Alvarado Park near Indian School Road. Their last day is September 25.
