Do you receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits? If so, you can use your SNAP-EBT card at more than 80 farmers markets in Minnesota, and you can make your money go further with the Market Bucks program. Between May 1 and October 31, 2016, every $1 of SNAP-EBT benefits you spend at participating locations will be matched by $1 in Market Bucks — up to $10!
There are three easy steps to using a SNAP-EBT card at a farmers market.
- Buy tokens at the EBT booth. Get Market Bucks to match dollar-for- dollar (up to $10).
- Use tokens (and Market Bucks) to buy SNAP-eligible foods from market vendors.
- Keep unused tokens for future visits or return them at the EBT booth.
