The Crossroads Farmers Market has been making fresh, healthy food more accessible in the Takoma/Langley Crossroads since 2007. A lively community gathering space for people of all backgrounds and incomes, this market was the first market in Maryland to accept federal nutrition benefits, and the first in the country to launch a “double dollar” incentive program to match the value of these benefits spent at market. Over the last ten seasons, the market has experienced tremendous growth: More than $411,000 in incentives, called Fresh Checks, have been distributed to over 13,000 residents who use them to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.
