Farmer's Market can help stretch food dollars

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The weekly Santa Cruz River farmers' market was held Thursday afternoon on the west side.

The market is held every Thursday from 3 to 6 P.M.

The market featured workshops on nutrition and homemade soap making.  The market features produce from dozens of vendors and farmers in Southern Arizona.

"Right now we're running a special program for those who use SNAP benefits, or food stamps, so, anyone who comes with their EBT card out to the market can get a dollar for dollar match on their purchases," said Monica Garcia from the Community Food Bank.

If you missed out Thursday, you can still catch it next Thursday at the Mercado San Agustin.
