The market offers “Market Bucks” that can be purchased for use with vendors via credit/debit cards or SNAP/EBT, and will again be matching SNAP purchases up to $10 per visit so that everyone can afford to get fresh and healthy foods at our market. Plus, for SNAP folks: HIP is here! Use your EBT card to shop with Farmer Dave’s first, THEN get your additional market bucks.
