Resource Library

Welcome to the Farmers Market Coalition Resource Library, an ever-growing database of resources for farmers market operators, organizations that support farmers markets, and  researchers. These resources were developed by a wide spectrum of organizations, agencies, and academic institutions, and we are grateful for the spirit of sharing which allows us to bring a variety of tools to your table in one searchable portal. We hope you find them useful and consider submitting resources of your own for the benefit of the farmers market community.

In addition to this resource library, FMC curates The Farm Direct Nutrition Incentives Guide Site, a comprehensive library of resources for the people who run SNAP/EBT and nutrition incentives at farmers markets, farm stands, CSAs and mobile markets. If you are looking for information related to SNAP and nutrition incentives, you’ll find some resources here, and many more at the Farm Direct Nutrition Incentive Library.

2023 Report on EBT Technology at Farmers Markets

SNAP/EBT and Nutrition Programs

Farmers Market Coalition (FMC), the national farmers market association, is proud to share its latest brief detailing findings gleaned from a study of EBT technology used among farmers markets across the United States. FMC’s 2023 Report on EBT Technology at Farmers Markets is a snapshot of the costs and challenges involved in offering EBT technology at farmers markets, including top concerns among market operators who participated in the survey. Twenty years after the nationwide switch to EBT for SNAP, as farmers market operators and lawmakers grapple with new technologies, this data reflects a bird’s-eye view of the state of EBT technology in the farmers market sector.

The report is the result of a national survey led by FMC, and was authored by Lindsay Way (Way Consulting LLC) and Amanda Maria Edmonds (AM Edmonds LLC), who contributed to the analysis and report generation. Two hundred and thirty market organizations, representing 530 market locations submitted responses. This sample size represents 17% of all SNAP-authorized market sites nationwide.
