Did you know that Bost Farm can accept EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) for payment?  If you know anyone who receives food benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program), please let them know that they can now use EBT to purchase fresh healthy food at Mid-Town Farmers’ Market.

We need volunteers to help at the market tent next summer.  If you are interested in helping, please contact our volunteer coordinator Betty Crouther (arpate@olemiss.edu).

If you know of a vendor who is interested in selling at Mid-Town, please point them to our website (http://www.mtfarmersmarket.com/) where the application documents can be downloaded, or give us their contact information so we can mail the documents to them.
