More Sacramento farmers markets to accept food stamps

Just in time for the fall harvest, residents of our recession-weary region will now be able to use Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) payments at an increasing number of farmers markets in the Sacramento area. With assistance from the Alchemist Community Development Corporation, EBTs will be accepted at the following locations:

- Inderkum High School Farmers' Market (2500 New Market Dr, Sacramento), which operates Saturdays from May through Oct., from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

- Starting Thursday, Florin Sears Farmers' Market (Florin Rd. & 65th St.), which runs on Thursdays year-round from 8 a.m. to noon.

- Starting Nov. 6, Downtown State Parking Lot Farmers' Market (8th and W streets, Sacramento), which runs on Sundays year-round from 8 a.m. to noon.
