The Moorhead Farmers Market accepts SNAP benefits that allow individuals an opportunity to shop local with their SNAP/EBT Cards. Using these benefits at the Market comes with an added perk of Double Bucks that allows shoppers to double their benefits up to $10 for SNAP eligible foods. But wait, there is more! New this year, an additional dollar for dollar match up to $10, called Produce Bucks, will be given to spend on produce items. That means a $10 swipe on the EBT Card will get participants $30 to spend on fresh local foods. The SNAP program at the Moorhead Farmers Market is run by First Presbyterian Church with contributions from PartnerSHIP 4 Health, and Hunger Solutions.
The Power of Produce (PoP) Club will also be back this summer! This year kids ages 4-12, and individuals 55+ are eligible to receive $2 worth of token (while funding lasts) to spend on produce items. Participants can register onsite or online! Funding from Essentia Health and the University of MN Extension allow us to offer these programs.
The Moorhead Farmers Market is sponsored by American Crystal Sugar Company and Lemke Home Improvements. The Moorhead Farmers Market and Moorhead Parks and Recreation is a member of the Minnesota Farmers Market Association and Minnesota Grown. For more information visit: www.moorheadparks.com.
