What a wonderful day! We were so excited to have the Beans and Greens crew with us to celebrate the official launch of the double value SNAP coupons, and we were honored to have Commissioner John Mendez join us as well. Gayla and Jenn with Beans and Greens brought beautiful balloons and t-shirts with their new logo, giving quite the festive atmosphere to the market. Gayla, Commissioner Mendez, Board Chair Chris Alliman and Rosedale Development Association director Wendy Wilson spoke about their hopes for the double value and for the future of healthy foods in Rosedale.
KCTV 5 joined the celebration as well and showed the Rosedale Farmers Market several times on the evening news. We hope to be able to post a link to the footage soon, but for now, check out the photos on Flickr!
