      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.

Contact Jesse Davis at jdavis@mfma.org or (218)-259-9675 for help getting SNAP/EBT setup at your market.

If you have any questions, please contact Patti Whitney-Wise, Program Manager, at pwhitneywise@hungersolutions.org or (651) 789-9850.”
