Fresh and organic vegetables at farmers market

Farmer's Markets

Fresh and Local Food for Everyone.

The availability of locally grown food at farmers markets is growing and communities are benefitting from the cooking demonstrations, music, nutrition education, and activities for children which are becoming more common in our modern markets.

SNAP/EBT and Double-Up Bucks

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) offers nutrition assistance to eligible, low-income individuals, including children, senior citizens, and families. SNAP helps households improve food security, reducing the number of people who skip meals because they don't have the money or resources to buy enough food. In Mecklenburg County, SNAP is also known as Food and Nutrition Services (FNS).

Apply for SNAP benefits today.

How to use your SNAP/EBT

  1. Find a market that accepts SNAP/EBT and offers Double Up Bucks on our market list below.

  2. Visit the market information tent  and tell a staff member that you would like to use your EBT card.

  3. Purchase market tokens from staff using your EBT card. Tokens will act as cash at the market.

  4. Double Up Bucks doubles your SNAP purchases up to $50 at participating markets.

  5. Spend your tokens with any vendor selling SNAP eligible items.
