SNAP and WIC

Program Mission

Simply put – everyone deserves to have the choice of fresh, local, nutrient-dense food. We aim to make the market a place where the whole community comes together as one and all people feel welcome and safe to choose the food that nourishes their body. This is made possible through our food access programs at the market.

Programs

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 $40 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.

Use su tarjeta de EBT en la carpa de información para obtener SNAP Bucks que se puede usar para comprar alimentos elegibles en cualquier parte del mercado.

Testimonials

I am so happy I can nourish my family with healthy food. Food provided with love from the farmers really helps me feel like I can love and nourish my family in the way I want.” – 2019 WIC participant
It’s a great program and makes so much sense. It incentivizes getting involved and supporting local food production. This is sustainable for the economy and the environment. It makes recipients feel like they have a place at the table that they could otherwise not afford. Personally, it has been a huge morale boost to go to the market and afford the products.” – 2019 WIC participant
“Mis hijas comen más verduras y disfrutan de las compras al aire libre. (English translation: My daughters eat more vegetables, and enjoy shopping outdoors [at the market]).” – 2019 WIC participant
