"We do have a farmers market from June to October. And I am on WIC, so I do take advantage of that program. They give me fruit vouchers and bread vouchers and milk vouchers, which helps a lot. … my girls love going to the farmers market. Most of them have samples of kettle corn and stuff like that. So they like the samples. And of course they like corn on the cob. So they know if we go down there, we’re going to get corn on the cob, so that makes their day."Communities Count Interview with a single mom of 3 children living in South King County
