The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/ formerly known as food stamps) helps put food on the table for millions Americans each month. And now, many farmers’ markets are accepting SNAP benefits! Farmers’ Markets are an affordable place to buy fresh, locally grown foods that provide the nutrition that you and your family need. Shopping at the farmers’ market is fun, and it’s easy to use your SNAP benefits. Shopping at your local farmers’ market is a great way to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, meet people in your community, and support local farms and businesses.
