Maryland Market Money – Use SNAP/EBT Card at Local Farmers Markets

Maryland Market Money – Use SNAP/EBT Card at Local Farmers Markets

 
 
HAGERSTOWN, MD (July 19, 2021) – Did you know SNAP/EBT benefits are accepted at Washington County Farmers Markets? A special program is underway called Maryland Market Money. When you spend $10 using your SNAP/EBT, we match up to $10 for free. What do you need to do?
 
Maryland Market Money is a state-wide currency distributed to shoppers at select farmers markets who participate in the following federal nutrition benefits programs:
 
Shoppers who spend these benefits at participating farmers markets can receive additional Maryland Market Money in the form of dollar-value tokens (typically $10 per shopper per market day). These tokens can be spent on any SNAP-eligible foods at any participating market in Maryland, helping to increase customers’ food budgets for purchasing fresh, healthy, local foods at farmers markets while also directly supporting local growers and producers.
 
Examples of SNAP-eligible items include: non-hot food items (fruits, veggies, meat, milk, eggs, etc.) and seeds or plants that produce food.
 
Examples of ineligible items include: beer, wine, liquor, vitamins or supplements, prepared foods fit for immediate consumption, and hot foods.
