Did you know that IFM promotes food accessibility and affordability by accepting EBT SNAP benefits? “I am so thankful that Ithaca Farmers Market accepts EBT!” said one program participant “It allows my family to access fresh, high quality produce from the local farms we love! We can even order for pickup unlike many of the other grocery stores in town.”
Not only does our farmers market accept EBT programs, we participate in a NY State program that adds an additional 40% to the purchasing power of SNAP benefits at market. For every $5 in redeemed benefits the user receives an additional $2 to spend at the farmers market.
But WE NEED YOUR HELP to promote this program in our community and to develop additional food access programs and incentives at the Ithaca Farmers Market.
