“Markets With EBT” Finally Updated for 2015!

Despite a sluggish spring, the Markets With EBT page of Farm Fresh for All has finally been updated! Look to this page for up-to-date schedules, locations, and contact information for farmers’ markets throughout the Isthmus area that accept SNAP/EBT/FoodShare benefits. Shoppers can use these benefits to purchase any edible products at the market, and even edible or food producing plants and seeds! A few of these markets will participate in the Double Dollars Program again this year– stay tuned for more info!
