What's happening
at west end?

There's bustle in this place on Tuesday afternoons, as a field of blue tents pops up beside The LEAP Hub, offering seasonal produce and value-added products. A group of kids might stop by to shop with Market Bucks and learn about local food. West End neighbors walk down the block to purchase fresh food that's hard to find in the neighborhood. CSA members of two area farms can pick up their weekly shares during market hours. There are recipes to sample and fun activities for kids to try. It's all good, the energy and the offerings at this market. It's good for you, too.

In case of inclement weather, check LEAP's Facebook and Instagram pages for up-to-date information.
THIS JUST IN: LEAP trucker hats, shopping bags, cooler bags, and T-shirt are now for sale.
Also, gift certificates are available in $10 and $25 increments.
Purchase them from the market operator on site.

LOCAL food for all

West End Farmers Market doubles the value of purchases made by recipients of SNAP, Medicaid, and WIC. Shoppers let the market manager know they’d like to participate in LEAP's match programs. For every dollar spent (EBT, cash, or credit), customers receive a dollar in free fruits and vegetables. If shoppers spend $10, they receive $10 in black tokens (good for any SNAP-eligible item), and $10 in red tokens (good for produce and plants only), for a total of $20.
