Use your SNAP benefits at farmers markets!

Posted by ONIE Project on 05/09/2018

Did you know you can use SNAP benefits at farmers markets? You can buy a variety of fresh foods including produce, breads, honey, eggs, milk, meat and food producing plants.

 Shopping with your SNAP benefits at the farmers market is simple & easy! When you arrive at the market, find the table with the EBT machine (usually run by the market manager or a volunteer). Just swipe your card & specify the amount of money you plan to spend. The volunteer will give you tokens equal to that amount.  If you don't use them all, bring them back the following week and use them then. Generally speaking, one token equals 1 dollar. Use your tokens at any vendor booths displaying this yellow "We Welcome SNAP" sign:
