Springfield Sister Cities Association invites you to the C-Street City Market, 321 E. Commercial Street at Jefferson, on Saturday June 8 at 10:00am (weather permitting) for a free concert by Grupo Musical Canela, a four-piece band from Springfield’s sister city of Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico. Canela will be joined by special guest Enrique Ortiz. It's free and open to the public. You can get a taste both of Mexican culture and locally grown food.

Another Springfield farmers market will cater to those on federal food assistance starting this weekend.  KSMU's Michele Skalicky has more.

Two Springfield farmers markets currently accept payment with EBT cards--the Greater Springfield Farmers Market and Farmers Market of the Ozarks.  The Electronic Bank Transfer Cards are issued to those who receive financial help for food through SNAP--the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.  And, starting tomorrow, C-Street Market, near the Footbridge on Commercial Street, will begin accepting the cards.
