Food Stamps at Farmers Markets

Ogden FM trainingOne of UAH’s continual goals is to get more fresh, local food available to food stamp recipients. We support this initiative by 1) Conducting outreach to inform the community about what markets accept food stamps, and 2) Supporting farmers markets to accept the food stamp program. If you are a market farmer market pic2manager or representative interested in becoming a food stamp retailer, check out our Farmers Market TOOLKIT 2014. This toolkit provides all the information you need to become a SNAP retailer. 

If you or someone you know would like to use their food stamps at a farmers market, look at the LIST to find nearby markets!

 

How food stamps at farmers markets works for customers:

Token at the Downtown Farmers Market1. When you arrive at the farmers market find the EBT booth. There will be signs at the market directing you where to go

2. Decide how much money you would like to spend and then attendant at the booth will run your car for the requested amount

3. The attendant will then give you tokens, each worth $1, for you purchase eligible items from vendors (You can use all your tokens that day, or save them for another market day) Note: tokens bought at one market cannot be used at another market. Each market has it’s own unique token
