SNAP & Save

What is the SNAP & Save program?Snap&Save_Logo

Use your EBT card at participating farmers’ markets, and we’ll match what you spend up to $10 every week. That means that if you swipe your EBT card for $10 at a local farmers’ market, you’ll get $20 worth of tokens to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables. It’s a great deal!

Don’t see your favorite local farmers’ market below? That probably means they’ve switched over to the Healthy Incentives Program, which offers an instant dollar-for-dollar match on SNAP spent on fruits and vegetables at farmers markets, farm stands, mobile markets, and CSAs. Find up-to-date info on HIP availability here.

How does SNAP & Save Work?

  1. Visit any participating farmers’ market (see below).
  2. Shop around and decide how much you want to spend from your SNAP benefits.
  3. Swipe your EBT card (just like at a supermarket) at the market managers’ booth (look for a sign!).
  4. Get tokens instead of cash for the amount you chose — plus up to $10 in extra tokens.
  5. Use your tokens that same day to buy fruit, vegetables, and more at the market.
