SNAP&Save

 

We are dedicated to increasing access to healthy, local food for people of all incomes and backgrounds.

Our SNAP&Save program doubles the value of customers' food stamps (SNAP benefits) at $5 each week.

This means that when a customer swipes their EBT card for $5, they receive $10 in market tokens to spend on vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, cheese, mushrooms, bread, jam, maple syrup, honey, garden plants, and more – all directly from the people who grow and produce these nourishing products. 

“The doubling of SNAP benefits is an enormous assist to those of us with tight budgets.”

“I’m able to meet nutritional requirements to maintain a higher quality of health than last year.”

“If it weren’t for this program, I would run out of food long before my benefits recharge. And the food is far healthier than most store-bought groceries.”

“I so much appreciate a farmers market that makes fresh, healthy, organic and local foods available to all people.”

In the past years, we have collaborated with the Food Bank of Western Mass. to screen and help people apply for food stamps at the market. We also provide numerous recipes through our website and have cooking demos at market to assist people in the preparation of whole, seasonal foods.

Every week we have musicians and artists at market allowing hard-working parents to relax, to shop, and to be inspired!

So that's SNAP&Save, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

First of all, please tell everyone you know that all the farmers markets in Amherst and Northampton accept food stamps. Tell them that all the markets in Northampton and Amherst will double the value of any customer's food stamps (at least $5). 

SNAP&Save is funded entirely by individuals and businesses in our community. Please help!  At the moment, we are matching $5 instead of $10 so that our funds will last through the end of the market season.

Here’s how to donate:

  • Contribute cash and checks directly at the Tuesday Market tent (purple awning).
  • Or: Send checks made out to Tuesday Market to 1 Ventures Field Rd, Northampton, MA, 01060 (please write FSX2 Donation in the Memo line.)
  • Or if you need your donation to be tax-deductible, make your check out to CISA with SNAP&Save in the memo line or click here to donate online.

 

Thank You!
