Big News! Winter Market Set For This Season

We are happy to announce that the Market will continue through November and into December, with the help of Montgomery Presbyterian Church!

For several years, we have wanted to extend the MFM season. But, a winter market presents a different set of challenges. The biggest one is the weather.  The Market needs to go indoors when Cincinnati’s unpredictable fall weather turns snowy or cold.

The members of Montgomery Presbyterian Church offered to host the winter Market. Their location, at 9994 Zig Zag Rd., in Montgomery, has outdoor space when the weather is sunny and crisp, indoor space when it turns wintry, and plenty of parking. It’s less than 1-1/2 miles from Montgomery Elementary School, just a 5-minute drive.

Many of the details are still being worked out, but we want you to know as soon as we know so you can keep us on your calendar for Saturday mornings, and put us in your plans for holiday gifts. As we know more, we will pass it along to you.

We are grateful to the congregation at Montgomery Presbyterian Church and Rev. Michelle Bacon for supporting the Market and our community.

 

MFM Accepts Credit Cards & SNAP/EBT

MFM can now accept SNAP benefits (formerly known as “food stamps”), and credit cards. Here are the details.

MFM accepts the Ohio Direction Card, which is the payment for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). The method of transferring the benefits is called EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer).

To use SNAP/EBT, come to the MFM Manager’s Booth to swipe your card and convert your benefits into MFM Bucks (for use at our market only). These special MFM Bucks are accepted by our vendors to purchase meat, cheese, poultry, dairy products, bread, cereal, fruits, and vegetables. Also, seeds and plants which produce food for the household to eat can be purchased. These products must be packaged to be consumed at home, not while walking around the Market.

As an added benefit, MFM has teamed up with Produce Perks (a non-profit), which will match the first ten dollars ($10.00) of SNAP purchases for fresh fruits and vegetables. This allows SNAP customers to double their first $10 in produce purchases.

If you know how we can spread the word to SNAP/EBT users,
please let us know.

The same system will allow you to use credit cards at MFM. Some of our vendors already accept credit cards. For the rest, come to the Manager’s Booth. We will swipe your credit card for the amount you want (in $10 increments). You will receive MFM Bucks to use at all vendors’ booths. We pass along to you our $1.00 processing fee.
