Local Farmers Attend Workshop

Tallahassee, FL -- March 8, 2012

Local farmers took part in a training session for the Farmer's Market Nutrition Program.

The event was held at FAMU's Center for Viticulture and Small Fruit Development. It went over the Federal guidelines for FMNP and certified farmers so they could accept food coupons. The program helps provide fresh fruits and vegetables to families in need.

"Healthy eating, healthy eating habits and exercise of course too are all linked to preventative strategies when dealing with different health problems," says Jennifer Taylor of the Small Farm Programs.

The program is done annually. Some farmers markets that accept FMNP are located at Lake Ella, Blair Stone Road and Innovation Park

    A easy and wonderful way to save money is by using Printapons. Printapons are online coupons that are dispersed based on your city. Each coupon saves at least 50% off the regular price of an item in your city.

    Every year I really appreciate all the wonderful farmers that bring the fresh fruits and vegetables to town. They are always friendly and helpful as to knowledge of their products. Most often if I ask for a small sample, they give me one. Love these guys and gals, wish I could shop with them more often.
