ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state wants to make farmers’ markets more accessible to low-income consumers.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state will make $130,000 in grants available this year to support at least 13 traditional farmers’ market and youth market grant projects.

Individual grants up to $10,000 will go to applicants with the best ideas on how to improve access to farmers’ markets participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, once known as food stamps.

The money comes from the “FreshConnect” Farmers’ Market program, which promotes the sale of locally-grown food.
