SNAP / EBT / WIC

EN ESPAÑOL

Cobblestone is pleased to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) for Women, Infants and Children at the market!

Come to the Information Booth to use your SNAP/EBT card or WIC FMNP coupons! The market tokens are valid throughout the entire market season at both the Outdoor Saturday Market and Summer Weekday Wednesday Market. They are also valid at any PopUp Markets during the extended holiday season.

How to use SNAP/EBT

Come to the Information Booth to swipe your SNAP/EBT card to purchase $1.00 market tokens to spend at the Wednesday and Saturday markets. If you choose to use $5.00 or more from your SNAP/EBT card, you will be given an additional $5.00 match in market tokens to spend at the market. These additional funds are offered through our Food Access Program once per market day.

  1. Decide how much you want to spend at the market.

  2. Come to the Information Booth in the center of the market.

  3. Tell the person working at the information booth how much you want to spend. They will swipe your card to deduct that amount and give you $1 wooden market tokens in exchange to spend at the market. They will also match what you spend (up to $5 per market) in Bonus Bucks tokens!

  4. Use tokens at any stand that sells SNAP/EBT eligible products. NOTE: No change can be given.

  5. Cobblestone Farmers Market tokens can only be spent at our market.
