This morning we talked with Sabrina Schirtzinger and Tammy Ruhl about the Mount Vernon Farmer’s Market. Sabrina and Tammy are in charge of organizing the local foods and connecting people through the farmer’s market and other resources. They gave us all the details for 2017 market.

In our conversation, we highlighted a new program at the market for Knox County community members. The Ohio Direction Card (also known as SNAP, food assistance, or Food Stamps) are now accepted at the Mount Vernon Farmer’s Market. The Get Healthy Knox County Coalition hopes to provide access to healthy foods to all residents of Knox County.
