The Leon Valley Public Library Farmers Market, located along Evers Road in San Antonio, Texas, is a vibrant market that actively participates in the San Antonio Food Bank's (SAFB) nutrition program. Established in 1980, the SAFB has been dedicated to combating hunger in San Antonio and Southwest Texas. As part of their efforts, they offer FMNP vouchers which can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at selected farmers' markets like the one hosted at the Leon Valley Public Library. By utilizing these vouchers, you not only support local farmers but also contribute to assisting eligible women and children in need.
Operating every Wednesday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm, the SAFB at the Leon Public Library runs throughout the year. The best part is that there is no requirement for pre-registration; you can simply visit the market and participate in the program on-site. It's a convenient and accessible way to make a positive impact in the community while enjoying the abundance of fresh produce available at the market.
