Farmer Markets Nutrition Education

Farmers markets play a vital role in connecting Connecticut residents with fruits and vegetables grown in their local communities. This role is particularly important in neighborhoods where residents have limited access to large grocery stores and fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

The Husky Nutrition Programs provide nutrition education at farmers’ markets where SNAP/EBT and/or WIC benefits are accepted. Nutrition educators engage with market-goers through the use of display boards and interactive activities promoting healthy eating. Activities and messages emphasize how to select and prepare fruits and vegetables as well as food safety tips. The goal is to provide useful information that will promote healthy behaviors.
