What is Market Match?
Market Match is a program of the Ecology Center and is funded in part through the California Department of Food and Agriculture and the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. When customers use their benefits at farmers’ markets and other farm-direct outlets (farm stands, CSAs and mobile markets), Market Match provides matching funds, up to $15.00 daily, so that they can buy more fresh produce.
How does Market Match work?

their SNAP benefits at the Farmers’ Market information booth in
exchange for EBT tokens, they can receive an equal amount in
Market Match tokens for free (up to $15 per person per
day). Market Match is good only for fruits and vegetables.
When you use your EBT card at the farmers’ market, you can get extra money to spend on fruits and vegetables with Market Match.

What are the benefits of Market Match?
Market Match makes it easier for families and individuals with limited income to afford fresh produce. Fresh fruits and vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet, but usually cost more than canned or processed foods. Market Match makes your CalFresh benefits go farther and makes local, homegrown produce more accessible and affordable while providing additional income for local famers.
