How to use SNAP/EBT at Greenmarkets
1. Find your neighborhood Greenmarket. (All markets accept SNAP).
2. Visit the market information tent and look for the Market Manager. They will be wearing a GrowNYC t-shirt.
3. Swipe your EBT card to purchase as many $1 or $5 wooden tokens as you'd like. These tokens will act as cash at the market.
4. Receive $2 in Health Bucks (good for fruits and vegetables only) for every $5 you spend with SNAP.
5. Spend your tokens at any farm stand selling SNAP-eligible foods.
*NEW: Many farmers accept SNAP/EBT directly. Visit the market info tent to find out which farmers can swipe your EBT card and provide you with Health Bucks.
