The North Mobile County Food Park and Market kicks off Saturday, May 19th. It's your chance to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies. If you are a local farmer, or butcher - it's not too late for you to secure a booth!

Frewin Osteen is the director for the market. Osteen says some customers buying SNAP-eligible foods with an EBT card will be allowed to double their dollars for the event. You can reserve you "bucks" by visiting the North Mobile County Food Park Facebook page. Like the page, and leave a message.

The market opens Saturday (May 19) at 10 am and runs until 2 pm at 204 South Wilson Avenue in Prichard. If the event is a success, it will be held on the first and third Saturday of every month.
