SNAP/EBT + Fresh Access Bucks = More Good Food For ALL

SNAP/EBT + Fresh Access Bucks = More Good Food For ALL

We’re excited to announce that Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits are now accepted by many of our vendors, with double-dollar benefits available through the Fresh Access Bucks program. Fresh Access Bucks makes fresh, local produce more affordable and accessible to low income families while supporting Florida’s farmers and enhancing our local economies. It does so by increasing the purchasing power of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants by providing a one-to-one match for Florida grown fruits and vegetables. A SNAP cardholder who spends $10 of their SNAP benefits at a participating market receives an additional $10 to purchase fresh, local produce.

Fresh Access Bucks will double spending power on Florida-grown fruits, vegetables, and edible starter plants. We are excited to expand access and opportunities for members of the community and farmers alike!  It means more people eating locally and supporting the local economy.  Stop by our headquarters booth at the market for more information.
