Just Harvest’s Fresh Access program enables food stamp purchases at 21 farmers markets and farm stands in Allegheny County.
Customers can now use food stamps via their ACCESS card to purchase a variety of fresh produce, baked goods, meat and dairy products. Just Harvest will also give food stamps shoppers a $2 Food Bucks coupon to use on fresh fruits and veggies for every $5 they spend at Fresh Access markets.
Credit and debit cards are also accepted.
Fresh Access is a coordinated effort involving the City of Pittsburgh and other local municipalities as well as neighborhood organizations, participating local farmers, and the United States Department of Agriculture.
