What is Market Match?
Market Match is a federal nutrition program offered at farmers’ markets across the state and supports local farms. 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 $10.00 daily, so that they can by more fresh produce.
How does Market Match work?
When a customer withdraws 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 $10 per person per day). Market Match is good only for fruits and vegetables.
What are the benefits of Market Match?
Market Match makes it easier for familes 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.
