North End Farmers Market Opens Season, Offers Double Dollars and Kids Market Programs

North End Farmers Market will open its season this Friday with over a dozen vendors selling
fresh bread, milk, eggs, produce, flowers and more! From 12-1 pm, there will be prepared lunch
offering from Tandoor Indian Restaurant and soulful music by local musician, David Davis.

The Market will once again be offering its Double Dollars Incentive Program, which matches the
amount of money spent by customers using federal and state benefits, bringing more food into
the homes of families. Additionally, the market will offer our North End Kids Market program to
North End youth. This innovative program gives the kids involved tokens to shop at our farmers
market and teaches them about the environment, eating healthy, budgeting and the importance
of knowing where your food comes from.

DATE & TIME: Friday June 22, 2012. 10 AM – 2 PM.
The market is held every Friday through the end of October.

LOCATION: Corner of Main St. and Liberty St., Middletown, CT.

The Farmers Market is a project of the North End Action Team. It is made possible through partnerships with CT Department of Agriculture and Wholesome Wave. The North End Kids Market is supported by the Rockfall Foundation and the City of Middletown.

Wholesome Wave is a national nonprofit, working to increase access to and affordability of
fresh, local produce in underserved areas while supporting local farms.
