Farmer's market-goers in Lincoln are readying for Saturday when the ALMH Farmer's Market reopens for the summer.
Chelsea Campbell says this is the sixth year for the market and is excited they are going to be able to bring back a lot of programming that was put on pause last summer due to the COVID pandemic.
The 'sample of the market' program is returning this year along with programs for kids to token games are coming back in 2021. Campbell says tokens are good to be used at any vendor at the market.
Health screenings are returning in 2021. Campbell says these are great free resources to the community that are wildly popular.
Campbell indicates the token system used at the market can often be a point of confusion. Tokens are not required to shop at the market but come in handy if you don't have cash and vendors do not have access to debit card scanners. Campbell also points out SNAP users can shop the market.
Campbell says in 2020, the ALMH Farmer's Market went back to its essential function and was very happy to see the community support for the market. Additionally, they found their online shopping program was a huge success and are bringing that back in 2021.
