Shoppers can also make a cash donation, which will then be used to purchase fresh produce and eggs from farmers at the market for the full value. At the end of each market, the donated produce and eggs will be delivered to the Salvation Army to serve its customers. The donation station will be at the Farmers Market on the following dates and times:
