“We are thrilled to promote health and local eating by sponsoring the Clarksville Downtown Market for the second year,” said Shani Simms, owner of Season’s Market and Bump & Rump. “Please stop by our booth for free samples, we can’t wait to meet you!”

New this year, the Clarksville Downtown Market will be accepting EBT. In addition, the Market will offer a double-up program called Fresh Savings, which helps shoppers who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits stretch their SNAP dollars on fresh produce.

When shoppers spend up to $20.00 buying any SNAP eligible food with their EBT card, they receive the equivalent amount in Fresh Savings tokens to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables the same day or at future visits. Fresh Savings is a healthy-food incentive program supported by AARP Foundation, United States Department of Agriculture and co-sponsored by United Healthcare.

“The Clarksville Downtown Market is proud to make locally- grown, healthy foods accessible to everyone,” Market Manager, Channel Lemon said.
