May 19, 2021 0

Here at Mendocino Coast Clinics (MCC), we care about your health. In fact, your health is our mission!

Good nutrition is one of the most important building blocks of good health. But if you have lost income due to the pandemic or are on a fixed income, it may be difficult to stretch your budget to buy healthy, fresh food, like fruit and vegetables.

At the weekly Fort Bragg & Mendocino Certified Farmers Markets, so you can buy locally grown, fresh fruit and vegetables from your neighbors year-round. The Fort Bragg Market is at the corner of Laurel and Franklin every Wednesday from 2:00 to 5:30 pm.

The Farmers’ Market not only accepts EBT (food stamps), they also match your food stamps, up to $15. So, if you spend $15 in EBT, you receive an extra $15 in market tokens to spend on fresh fruit and vegetables at the Market!
