It’s been an exciting month at TCLF! We’re delighted to share that Grow Local Farmers Market, a Fresh Look partner in Corpus Christi, is officially launching SNAP acceptance on Wednesday, March 1, 2023!

The Grow Local Farmers Market is a project of Grow Local South Texas, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the community’s quality of life, vitality, and exemplifying healthy living. By accepting SNAP at the farmers market, they are increasing access to healthy local food for all families in their community.

In addition, shoppers who use SNAP at Grow Local Farmers Market will receive up to $20 in matching funds to spend on SNAP-eligible foods, while funds last. Funding for this program is provided by Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc.

Grow Local Farmers Market is open every Wednesday from 5:00-8:00 PM at the Art Center of Corpus Christi (100 N. Shoreline Boulevard, Corpus Christi, TX 78401).
