SNAP & DUFB
if you use the EBT/SNAP card (food stamps), you can now use it to buy fruits, vegetables, herbs, seeds, food-producing plants, honey, jams, jellies, baked goods, and more at the Emmett Farmers Market
Thanks to the Idaho Farmers Market Association and a grant they received from the Department of Health and Welfare they have assisted us with all of the equipment, signage, and funding each year so that we are able to help more families to have access to local, fresh, healthy food when they use their EBT and DUFB (Double Up Food Bucks) at the Emmett Farmers Market. It also provides more income for the vendors who bring the fresh produce, lamb, chickens, beef, eggs, honey, and much more to the market to sell. It is a win-win for all!
Double Up Food Bucks began at Idaho farmers markets in 2016 as a way to increase access to and affordability of fresh fruits and vegetables for low-income families, support area farmers, and stimulate local economies
Just a few simple things to do before you will be on your way around the market to do your shopping with your tokens.
