Posted On: March 6, 2018
The Minnesota Farmers Market Association is accepting market applicants for the 2018 Summer Market Bucks.
“Market Bucks is a Minnesota program to match SNAP-EBT customer’s dollars (up to $10 per visit) at participating Farmers’ Markets across Minnesota. In order to participate, a farmers’ market must:
- Have an FNS # and functioning equipment to accept EBT cards at the market
- Have at least 3 vendors selling SNAP-eligible foods
- Sign up for the program through Hunger Solutions
Now is the time to get signed up for Summer Market Bucks 2018!
Remember that you must have a current FNS# and functioning equipment to accept EBT cards at your market. You can fill out your application here: http://bit.ly/MB2018-App
Once we have received your application, you will get a notice that includes the administrative grant proposal. Then, once we have approved your application for Market Bucks, we will notify you and send the MOU to sign, along with a request for ACH information (if different or new for this year), and the number of Market Bucks and Outreach materials you want for your program.
