Year Two of the MadMarket Double Dollars Program has begun. The Double Dollars program is a farmers’ market incentive program for SNAP/FoodShare Wisconsin participants that offers a dollar-for-dollar match for money spent at participating markets. Unfortunately no markets on the West side are included.  This year’s participating markets are: the Northside Farmers’ Market, the Eastside Farmers’ Market at Wil-Mar Center, and the new Brittingham Farmers’ Market at Brittingham Park. The program will run through October and SNAP participants are eligible to obtain up to $25.00 in matching dollars at each market.

Elver Park Splash Pad is open.  11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Great fun for everyone.
