Farmer’s Markets

 


 

Farmer's Markets are places where local farmers and food makers come to sell their produce, meat, food, and crafts. They are a great place to go with the family on the weekend to shop and listen to live music and meet people. You can use your SNAP, WIC, and FNMP benefits at the farmer's market and you will receive DOUBLE dollars!

 

Double Dollars doubles the dollar amount of Lone Star (SNAP), WIC and FMNP Vouchers. This way, families can get more fruits and vegetables at SFC Farmers’ Markets. Find step by step instructions below on how to use Lone Star (SNAP), WIC and FMNP at SFC’s Farmers’ Markets.

HOW TO GET YOUR DOUBLE DOLLARS AT THE MARKET

1. Stop by the farmers’ market Double Dollars booth to get started!

2. Exchange your Lone Star (SNAP) and WIC benefits for SFC Market Dollars.

3. Get up to $30 MORE in SFC Double Dollars for fruits and vegetables!

FARMERS’ MARKET NUTRITION PROGRAM

WIC clients can receive Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) vouchers to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at participating farmers’ markets. Pick up your vouchers at the Double Dollars booth and get $30 in vouchers for each FMNP eligible child and parent.

FMNP vouchers can only be spent at participating markets. The coupons are given out at participating markets in the spring and they expire at the end of the fall season.

SFC offers up to $30 in Double Dollars for each voucher booklet through the SFC Double Dollars project. Double Dollars do not expire and can be used throughout the year. To see if you are eligible to receive FMNP vouchers, contact your local WIC clinic.

Watch our videos below to learn more about how to use FMNP at the SFC Farmers' Markets.
