The Youngtown Farmers Market will open the season at B&O Station next Wednesday. 

The market, sponsored by Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley, will be open from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. 

The market will continue the second Wednesday of every month through October.

Early season crops to be sold next week include strawberries, greens, onions, and herbs. Garden plants may also be available.
 
The market will accept cash, credit cards, SNAP/EBT, WIC Farmers Market Nutrition vouchers, Mercy Health Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program vouchers, and offers the Produce Perks SNAP Double-Up program.
 
The Double-Up program doubles the purchasing power of SNAP/EBT users for fresh fruits and vegetables.

The Mercy Health Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program allows Mercy Health patients to obtain fresh fruits and vegetables for free using prescription vouchers written by Mercy Health Physicians if those foods could cause their health to improve.

The farmers market and fruit and vegetable prescription program are made possible by Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley donors.
