Bingham Area Health Center Farm Stand Moves to Thursdays

BINGHAM – The Food-for-All Farm Stand at Bingham Area Health Center will now take place on Thursdays, starting immediately. It was decided that participating farms would have a greater variety of vegetables to offer at the farm stand on Thursdays each week.

As always, cash and EBT cards are accepted at the Food-for-All Farm Stand.

The Food-for-All Farm Stand is geared toward creating an alternative food access model that will make fresh local produce available and affordable for rural Mainers who are low income or use SNAP benefits. The cost of the food is subsidized by Good Shepherd Food Bank. 

The farm stand will be open from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Thursdays during the following days in 2017:
August 24
August 31
September 7
September 14
September 21
September 28

Fresh, local produce will be provided by Moodytown Farms of Pittsfield and various other local farms as needed.

Bingham Area Health Center is located at 237 Main Street in Bingham. For more information, call 207-672-4187.
