SNAP/EBT at the farmers market

As noted in the map above, lots of farmers markets in Minnesota accept SNAP/EBT. Find out how you use SNAP/EBT at a farmer’s market, how you know how much to spend, and what farmers market purchases are allowable on Using EBT cards at farmers markets.

Market bucks

SNAP/EBT customers can double their purchasing power at participating farmers markets. Every $1 of SNAP/EBT benefits spent is matched by $1 in Market Bucks — up to $10 every time a customer visits the market! Hunger Solutions Minnesota administers the program and has flyers and brochures available on their website.

The Twin Cities Mobile Market — a grocery store on wheels that brings fresh produce, meat, and groceries to 33 locations throughout the Twin Cities — also accepts SNAP/EBT and offers Market Bucks. See when it will be in your neighborhood on the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation's Find a Mobile Market Stop Near You webpage.
