Farmers’ Market Passport to Savings

The Wednesday evening Parrott St. Farmers Market features a no-cost opportunity for everyone to get paid for having fun and buying food. (Yes, that means free.)

Here is how it works. Each week there are two featured (and often seasonal) foods. If you buy both foods, you get a stamp in your Passport for that week. There’s a second stamp available for visiting the special booth or demonstration, netting you two stamps per week.

At the end of each month, if you have five or more stamps during that month, stop by and we’ll reward you with an appropriate number of “carrot dollars” that can be spent like cash at the Market. Sometimes we even have bonus coupons for special food items.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not! If you need a new Passport or a stamp, stop by the Information booth, where you might get stamped by Peggy (that’s her!) or Larry, or another member-volunteer.

It’s easy to plan ahead–just pick up your passport and check the calendars inside for each month’s bounty. If you have questions about the market, the merchants, or the Passport program, remember where to go? The Information Booth. It’s hard to miss–right in the middle of the block, near the Englander and Allphin Jewelers, and right next to the week’s Community booth.
