WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – It’s time to get together and celebrate fall in the Friendly City!

 Grow Ohio Valley is making the final preparations for its Harvest Festival this Saturday. 

They’ve got a little something for everyone with a full day of local food, music and even games for the kids. Of course, you can’t forget fall favorites like apple cider pressing and a pumpkin patch. 

The festival is also a fundraiser for the Wheeling Public Market’s SNAP Stretch Program that helps support local farmers and increase food access. 

It increases food access by allowing SNAP customers to stop at the Public Market, and use their SNAP card to shop at the Public Market, but additionally and crucially allowing them to access a 50% discount on all local food products using their SNAP stretch cards.
