Farmers’ Markets are opening back up and it’s time to shop in season. Choosing in season produce is a great way to purchase what’s in stock and save money. In season produce is likely to be in abundance, and therefore is often sold at a lower price. North Carolina has several in season items during the month of March and April. Produce to look for include asparagus, broccoli, collards, greens, lettuce, mushrooms, peanuts, radishes, spinach, and of course sweet potatoes. Check out the North Carolina Fruit and Vegetable Availability chart before your next grocery trip.

Shop local and support your farmers. Sampson County offers More In My Basket At the Market, a program to familiarize consumers about how to shop, select and store produce, and make purchases using the EBT card. Join us for an educational session and farmers’ market tour.

Did you know select farmers’ markets across the state also have programs for seniors and recipients of the Women’s, Infants, and Children (WIC) program? Some farmers’ markets may also accept the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and have a Double Bucks program.
