Blairstown Farmers’ Market Offers SNAP Tokens & Good Food Bucks

Blairstown Farmers Market Encourages SNAP Program Participants

The Blairstown Farmers’ Market strives to make fresh, healthy food available to all. They welcome SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) users.

New Jersey’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, NJ SNAP, provides food assistance to families, individuals and college students with low incomes and/or disabilities to help them buy groceries through an EBT benefits card.

The Farm Market Manager (under the red umbrella) will debit EBT cards for the amount desired and distribute the necessary tokens.

Thanks to a generous grant, the Foodshed Alliance, who runs the Market, is offering up to $20 in Good Food Bucks extra to help stretch buying power for healthy fresh fruits and veggies.
