Frankford Farmers Market Returns This Tuesday

The Root Mass Farm will return to the Frankford Transportation Center Tuesday, June 3rd, with their fresh farm goods.  Hours of operation are 2 to 6 PM.  This effort is sponsored by the Food Trust.

For more than 20 years, The Food Trust has been working to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and information to make healthy decisions.

The Food Trust’s comprehensive approach includes improving food environments and teaching nutrition education in schools, working with corner store owners to increase healthy offerings and helping customers make healthier choices, managing farmers’ markets in communities that lack access to affordable produce and encouraging grocery store development in underserved communities.
