About Healthy Foods, Healthy Families: The Healthy Foods, Healthy Families program empowers low-income Rhode Island families with the tools to shop for and cook affordable fresh foods through a series of hands-on activities, offered in English and Spanish, at the farmers market. Parents come with their children to the market where the Healthy Foods, Healthy Families staff offers free samples, games, recipes, financial incentives, and giveaways.

About Farm Fresh RI Farmers Markets: Farm Fresh RI operates programs at 9 summer farmers markets and a winter market in neighborhoods across our state, and we facilitate SNAP / EBT acceptance at 8 more. We believe that every Rhode Island family should be able to take part in the fresh bounty of veggies, fruit, herbs, eggs, meats and cheeses produced by our local farmers. And we believe that our farmers are the key to vibrant cities and to vibrant countryside. That’s why Farm Fresh RI works to increase access to fresher, tastier food through the 55 farmers markets across Rhode Island. Our markets connect rural and urban communities, and strengthen the environment, health and quality of life of local farmers and eaters.
