Farmers Market in Houston
The Houston Health Department helps communities by making fresh fruits and vegetables more affordable. They do this via their Get Moving Houston Farmers Markets program. Because, they believe "fruits and vegetables help prevent or delay the start of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease while helping people maintain a healthy weight and just feel better". They also "accept cash, credit, debit and SNAP/Lonestar EBT". The schedule of the market is also available on their website. This market is also located in Northeast Multi-Service Center at 9720 Spaulding Street. Also, "this center has many different programs you can take advantage of". "Customers using SNAP and D-SNAP" also have "benefits". "Buy items at the markets" and they "will receive the dollar equivalent of their purchases in Healthy Houston Bucks to spend on fruits and vegetables".
