Shop with SNAP/EBT at your local farmers’ market!
Summer: Durham, Dover, Exeter, Greenland, Somersworth and Portsmouth farmers’ markets.
Winter: Seacoast Eat Local’s Winter Markets at Wentworth Greenhouses and Exeter High School.
Market Match: receive DOUBLE BUCKS to spend on fruits and vegetables every time you use your EBT card at the market, with no limit!
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.
For the 2015-16 Market season, Seacoast Eat Local is offering a 2-1 match on EBT funds, with no limit. Swipe $5 and receive an additional $10, or swipe $100 and receive an additional $200! Please note that Market Match coupons may only be used on fruits and vegetables and that the coupons do expire at the end of April 2016.
