Shop with SNAP/EBT at Seacoast Eat Local’s Winter Farmers’ Markets!
Market Match: receive up to $10 FREE to spend on fruits and vegetables when you use your EBT card at the market.
SNAP/EBT can be used to make purchases at the winter farmers’ markets. At the market, SNAP recipients can choose how much they would like to spend that day on food purchases. A market staff member will then swipe their EBT card for that amount. The customer is then given wooden tokens, that are used just like cash, and can be used to buy food at approved vendors at the market.
