Farmer’s Market SNAP Match Program
It is important to GCHD and Farmer’s Markets that fresh, local produce is available to all people, regardless of income. Thanks to financial support from the Paul Lauzier Charitable Foundation, Moses Lake Community Health Center, Confluence Health and Samaritan Healthcare low-income families can have help to buy healthy foods in Moses Lake.
By accepting SNAP (EBT/foods stamps) and offering Market Match program we aim to decrease the access barriers to fresh, healthy food!
Currently the SNAP Match program is available at the following Farmer’s Market locations.
Moses Lake Farmer’s Market 8:00 a m to 1:00 pm
May 2 through October 31
Market Location: McCosh Park
How to Instructions:
- Go to the market cashier tent or booth.
- Tell the cashier how much of your SNAP/EBT benefit you would like to spend. The cashier will give you tokens for your SNAP/EBT benefit and match up to $10 with FREE Market Match certificates/tokens. Each certificate/token is worth $1. The certificates/tokens are only good at the Moses Lake Farmer’s Market.
- Shop at any Moses Lake Farmers Market booths selling SNAP-eligible foods and food producing plants, such as tomato and herb plants. You may not purchase non-food items (flowers, soap) or prepared ready-to-eat foods with either the SNAP tokens or Market Match certificates. You will not receive change. The Farmers Market booths will assist you to maximize your Market Match certificates and SNAP tokens.
For example, if you redeem $15 in SNAP, you will get an additional $10 Free Matching certificates to spend. Giving you $25 to spend at the market!
