Did you know that EBT or SNAP cards give you access and discounts to incredible locally grown fresh food at our local Farmers Market?
Fresh fruit and vegetables are a wonderful way to get important nutrients for you and your family. And what could be better than getting extra to spend on great food! You can also buy local honey, bread, vegetable and herb plants you can grow at home and much more.
Just bring your card to the Welcome Table at one of the participating Farmers Markets and you will receive tokens that can be used at the market. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers as well as children 5 years or younger are also eligible to receive Farmers Market checks. So be sure to chat with your WIC team.
It is not just about buying fresh food, it is about knowing what to do with it. The Farmers Markets have great recipes and ideas for you and your family.
And it is a great activity you can do with your family!
