Food Rescue Numbers to Date – 1900 pounds rescued and distributed!
Big shout out to all our generous vendors who donate every week and our dedicated volunteers who help us glean, bicycle, and transport thousands of pounds of food to at-risk Alexandrians:  we have rescued 1,900 pounds of food, saved it from the landfill and provided healthy food to Alexandrians who need it!

The Old Town Farmers’ Market accepts SNAP/EBT and offers customers up to $20 in matching funds.  See Double Dollar Brochure – English or Double Dollar Brochure – Spanish for more information. This summer, SNAP customers can participate in a lottery for the chance to win even more incentives!  Be sure to make @OldTownMktAlex your market to shop on Saturday mornings!
