Farmers markets across the country depend and rely on SNAP program users, and those users depend on farmers markets for fresh food and vegetables. The company that hosted those transactions, Novo Dia, has announced they will be closing down.

   The company said they were going to close down July 31st, and only told their customers two to three weeks ago. Novo Dia since then extended their closing to the end of August.

   Farmers Markets nationwide will be affected, including the Monroe County Farmers Market
