A special thanks to Community Transformation Grant Project Region 5 in North Carolina for helping make this latest update possible. They’re doing some amazing work in NC to create healthier communities.
Tapping the new “Filter markets” button under the map shows options to sort and filter results. With CTG Project Region 5 we added nutrition assistance programs such as SNAP/EBT, WIC, and senior FMNP to help low-income individuals and families find fresh local food. You can choose to only show markets that accept those payment options and viewing any market will show the special payment types they accept.
The other filters let you sort by next open time so markets show up by day of week (a highly requested feature) and the last option lets you hide markets that are closed for the season or if we don’t know their hours (which YOU can update if you know them and we’ll love you forever).
Eating fresh food is more fun with friends, right? Invite people to use Farmstand by tapping the Invite friends button from the Find & Invite Friends screen. This area shows up for logged in users and lets you send a message to friends via email, text message, Facebook, Twitter, or other apps on your phone that allow sharing.
