Local Farmers’ Market Accepting SNAP

by Elizabeth Pitts-Hibbard

The Think Ability Duncan Farmers’ Market is one of over 40 in the state of Oklahoma that accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Senior Farmers Market benefits.

“By welcoming SNAP benefits, farmers markets are helping all Oklahomans have access to high-quality, locally-grown food. You can trust the food will last longer when it comes straight from the farm to your kitchen,” states Oklahoma Nutrition Information and Education (ONIE) Project’s Community Outreach Coordinator Jade Owen.

Think Ability’s market offers locally-grown produce through the fall harvest season, as well as year-round items such as meat, eggs, dairy, jams, bread, and pickled vegetables.

On Sunday, August 18 the Think Ability Farmers’ Market will host a family-friendly event during its regular hours of 12pm – 4pm. Activities include painting with vegetables, free games for children, and free backpacks with school supplies for school-age children while supplies last.

The Think Ability Farmers’ Market is located at 2301 West Beech in Duncan.
