NORWAY — The Farmer’s Market opens for a new season Thursday, May 24, with a new feature.

Organizers say they are now able to accept SNAP (food stamps) and credit cards. The market received a Western Mountain Alliance grant to provide an EBT machine for both SNAP recipients and credit cards.

The market is behind the Fare Share Market on Main Street where there is plenty of off-street parking.

This year’s market will have music, presentations about making a meal with only ingredients sold at the market, preserving food, understanding permaculture, making a garden in the backyard and using and growing herbs.

There will also be demonstrations of woodworking and whittling. Food vendors will have recipes and instructions on how to cook the vegetables they sell. Vendors will be happy to answer questions about cooking the food they are selling.

The first Farmer’s Market day is kids’ day. There will be baby animals to pet, face painting, music by Bill Ducos and a demonstration of beekeeping.
