All summer long, visit the markets and pay with your EBT card to receive HALF OFF your entire purchase!
There will be plenty of veggies, meats, cheeses, eggs and even some tinctures and salves to satisfy your every need from the market! Be sure to visit the Ohio Street Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays and the Bangor Farmers’ Market on Sundays to meet your local farmer, support Maine agriculture and get a 50% discount off your purchase!
