Farmers Market Outreach

Utahns Against Hunger (UAH) works to increase access to fresh, healthy local food by supporting and promoting farmers markets that accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps).

We do this by providing technical support and resources to new markets interested in accepting SNAP, and by maintaining an up-to-date map that helps customers find their nearest SNAP-authorized farmers markets. We also coordinate a statewide marketing campaign to promote the use of SNAP at participating markets.

Over the last decade UAH has helped over twenty Utah farmers markets and farm stands to start accepting SNAP, and the results have been encouraging. According to the USDA, SNAP redemptions at Utah farmers markets increased by over 1200% between 2008 and 2016!
