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 $10 each week. We thank CISA and Healthy Hampshire for spearheading this project and meeting an ambitious fundraising goal to expand food access across the entire Pioneer Valley.
This means that when a customer swipes their EBT card for $10, they receive $20 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.”
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 $10).
