This week it's all about the COOKOUT! We have, and we mean this, everything you need to cookout for Memorial Day and beyond. Our vendors have priced meats so you can stock up and not fear running out of great, local food when the neighbors, friends, and family stop by! Make sure to check our specials below and pick up everything you need for the table this week at the AFM!
When you shop at the Apex Farmers Market you are SUPPORTING LOCAL: farmers, businesses, and economy! Stop by the Welcome Tent or find the Market Ambassador roaming the Market to make a donation this Saturday or stop by our table for free coffee and a chat about all things AFM!
Speaking of SNAP/EBT, we are matching your dollars again this Market Season! What does that mean? I means if you swipe for $5, we give you $10 or $10 get $20 or $20 get $40 and so on! You get twice as much fresh, local produce, meat, eggs, cheeses and more for the same amount of SNAP/EBT money. We want to help your family eat well and be healthy so stop by our Welcome Tent today to swipe your EBT card and double the value of your swipe in SNAP/EBT tokens this Saturday at the Market.
