The market offers SNAP/EBT and will match SNAP purchases up to $15 per visit, so everyone can afford fresh and healthy foods at our market. We could not provide this SNAP Match or its increase from $10, without the generous sponsorship of The Wakefield Food Pantry. Good news for SNAP folks: HIP is back! Use your EBT card to shop with Farmer Dave’s or Moonlight Farm first, then get your additional SNAP bucks and match at the Market Manager Tent.


We invite everyone to come out, enjoy the festivities, and support our local farmers and artisans. See you at the market!
