This program is an asset to our community. It allows us to double SNAP/EBT participates transactions, up to an extra $40 free each market day.
Our partnership with FAB began October 5, 2017. Our market has distributed $21,068 in free incentive tokens to feed so many families in our community. Just in the last 6 months, $4,701 incentive/free tokens have been distributed. Not only has this helped feed local families, but it also helps our local farmers as well.
It is our mission as a Farmers Market to help feed our community. We hope that our community feels the same way. One way to help, is to participate in our raffles, so we can raise our membership fee to continue to be a part of this wonderful program.
