SNAP/EBT at Market
Use your SNAP card at market to purchase the most nutritious local food available. The USDA approved the use of SNAP/EBT at farmers markets across America to provide access to the most nutritious locally grown food. In addition to families in need having access to locally grown food the producers are also beneficiaries of the program keeping economic opportunities in the local community. See below how the Walmart Foundation supports incentive dollars for SNAP participants to shop at local farmers markets.
