What is the EBT / SNAP program?

SNAP is a federal program that replaced food stamps several years ago.   Now participants of this program receive a card, much like a debit card, that can be accepted at many food retailers across the country.  The SFM is proud to be a leader in the acceptance of EBT cards at farmers markets.  Simply bring your EBT card to the Market Manager stall on Saturdays.  You will receive wooden tokens that are accepted like cash by vendors of the SFM. Some federal restrictions apply. For more information about receiving food assistance, contact the Department of Social Services in your area.
