Lents International Farmers Market Opens Sunday! - June 13, 2012

The Lents International Farmers Market (LIFM) is kicking off its sixth season this Sunday, June 17th!

 

The market will run 11am -4pm on Sundays, June 17 - October 28 at SE 92nd & Foster Rd.

 

The LIFM is a unique market that offers its surrounding community members numerous ways to be a part of the experience, from growing to buying:

 

The LIFM is also matching SNAP purchases, up to $10 each week, and on opening day they will match $20! SNAP dollars (formerly food stamps) make up half of all sales at the market. In conjunction with purchasing opportunities, the market offers neighborhood residents a pathway to sell extra produce from their home gardens at the Community Table. 

 

Join us at the opening celebration where you can see community leaders perched on a dunk tank, watch chef demos, dance to live music, taste unique international foods, and more.
