MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (BURRISS) -- In case you haven’t noticed, it’s an election year, and if there’s one thing we’ve come to expect, it’s conflicting statements by candidates on almost every issue imaginable. But it isn’t just the candidates who seem dazed and often confused. On the subject of political advertising, the public seems as mystified as well.
MURFREESBORO,Tenn. (GRIGGS) --Tennesseans getting public food aid can now use their electronic benefit cards to buy locally grown produce at the Rutherford County Farmers Market.
In addition to giving the poor access to fresh food, Rutherford County Extension agent, Janie Becker says, it also opens a new market for growers.
“Increasing purchasing options to our consumers directly helps strengthen our small farm and home businesses that are represented here at the market, so by increasing our local purchasing options it helps both consumer and farmer.”
