In 2013, the Milton Farmers Market was revitalized when the Milton Community Youth Coalition (MCYC) received a state grant to increase healthy food access. Over the years the market has grown 12-fold, from 2 vendors to over 24, and secured a new location with high traffic and visibility. The market is now a destination for community members and families alike to support local growers, crafters and small businesses, enjoy fresh foods and connect with friends and neighbors. The Milton Farmers Market brings in over $35,000 in revenue to local businesses and supports the community through $2,500 in subsidy programs, bringing high quality, locally grown food to families in need.
