Attention Seniors Age 55+!
The Canton Farmers Market was recently awarded a grant to launch its Healthy Food Connect: Canton program to help better connect Canton area seniors to fresh, nutritious, local food. Interested seniors may schedule an orientation with the market staff to receive a one-on-one tour of the Farmers Market and information about the food assistance programs currently accepted at the markets. 

The first 300 Healthy Food Connect participants to attend a scheduled orientation will receive $5 in Market Bucks to purchase eligible food products at the market.  Monthly drawings for prizes will also be held for those who attend the market, so be sure to check in with the market staff each time you attend! In addition, the Canton Farmers Market will have weekly cooking demonstrations.  Recipe cards will also be available so you can recreate each culinary masterpiece at home! In addition, the Canton Farmers Market is partnering with Huron Valley Ambulance (HVA) to provide FREE transportation for qualifying individuals to and from our upcoming winter and regular season markets. For more information or to schedule an orientation, contact the Farmers Market Manager by emailing cantonfarmersmarket@canton-mi.org or call 734/394-5375 and take advantage of this special program today!
