Double your SNAP benefits at the market!
Swipe your EBT card at the info tent to purchase tokens to spend with vendors. All vendors with SNAP-EBT eligible items accept EBT tokens. It’s not just fruit & veggies. You can also buy honey, eggs, granola, jam, pickles, coffee beans, local meat and more!
Your benefits get matched up to $10 EVERY TIME you visit the farmers market. Neighborhood Roots operates 68 market days per year, so you could get an extra $680 a year in Market Bucks! Not only do you benefit, our farmers benefit. Every dollar spent at the market supports local farmers and small business owners.
