NEW for 2012
The Market will now be able to accept SNAP/EBT cards (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps) and Credit/Debit cards.
We are also participating in the Market Bucks Program from Blue Cross and MFMA (Minnesota Farmers Market Association.) “Market Bucks” coupons match the first $5 in EBT card purchases with an additional $5 in Market Bucks each market day.
We are asking everyone’s help in getting the word out about this great program that helps people eat good healthy food.
