Empty plates? Not on our watch.

We believe everyone deserves to feed their family fresh, local, nutrient-dense food. Our food access programs help expand financial access to this food and invests in economic opportunities for local producers. Our market is a place where everyone in our community should feel invited to gather and shop for local food. Thanks to our food access programs, we’re closer to making it a reality every day.

Incentives are available year-round at our on-street markets and online. To receive incentives at our farmers markets, visit our orange info booth in Boulder and Longmont.

How to shop with SNAP

How to shop with SNAP

Swipe your EBT card at the information tent to get SNAP bucks to purchase SNAP eligible foods anywhere in the market. For every dollar you withdraw from your SNAP account, you will receive an equal amount of Double Up Bucks which can be used to buy fresh fruits and vegetables up to $20 per visit. Just visit the information booth to receive your Double Up currencies! Click here for more information on the Double Up Program, and to apply to SNAP.

Shop our online store, pay with your EBT card at pick up, and receive up to $20 off fresh fruits and veggies each week! Your “Double Up Discount” applies to fresh fruits and veggies (not packaged goods) and will cover half your order, up to $20. Here’s how to do it:

  • Go to https://bcfm.localfoodmarketplace.com: Click “Sign Up” to create an account. Your password must be at least 8 characters long. Please note your username and password for future use.
  • Select: “I will pay using a SNAP CARD when I pick up my order” and shop away! For pickup in Longmont and Denver, the online store opens Tuesday at 8am and closes Thursday at noon. For pickup in Boulder and Lafayette, the online store opens Sunday at 8am and closes Tuesday at 1pm.
  • When you click on an item, it will display the Double Up Discount logo if it is eligible for the Double Up Discount. You may search for Double Up Discount items by clicking “Attributes” and selecting “Double Up Discount.” To get the most of the double up benefit, at least half your order should be fruits and vegetables. Please do not add any items to your cart that are not SNAP eligible (flowers, non-food items, or alcohol).
  • Go to: “Check Out.” The total you see will not necessarily be the amount that will be charged to your EBT card. Press submit (nothing will be charged to your card at this time).
  • Use the code “SNAP” to waive the $4.99 pick up fee.
  • Your order will be reviewed by our Food Access Specialist to ensure that your order meets guidelines. You will receive a confirmation of the dollar amount owed at pick up from [email protected]
  • Arrive at the curbside pick up location at the given time. Bring your EBT card and your confirmation email. Collect your items, pay for your order with your EBT card, and enjoy!

Please note: Paper coupons may not be used for online purchases. This includes paper SNAP bucks, Double Up Food Bucks, WIC bucks and Veggie bucks. You may use these at our traditional On Street Markets. Boulder County Farmers Markets may restrict future ordering for individuals who fail to collect orders at the time of pick up.
