Nearly 300 people turned out on a sunny, warm morning for the Bedford Farmers Market’s first Saturday of its 2016 season.
This year, the Market has a new feature. It is now accepting EBT cards. These are debit cards that people receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) money use to make their purchases. Rather than getting paper food stamps, the money is loaded on a debit card which recipients use to pay for purchases.
