Harrisonburg Farmers Market Now Offers EBT Matching Program

Harrisonburg Farmers Market now offering EBT Matching Program

The Harrisonburg Farmers Market is now offering a program called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, otherwise known as SNAP, which, according to the USDA website, “offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities.” Plus, all SNAP qualified customers will benefit from a matching grant allowing the farmers market to double their monies up to $10.00 per customer per market visit. 

Here’s how SNAP works at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market:

  1. Bring your EBT card to the ATM stand at the market.
  2. Exchange your SNAP benefits for market tokens.
  3. With the matching program, $10 EBT = $20 tokens!
