We are excited to now accept SNAP benefits at the Winchester Farmers Market! Thanks to the help of the Cheshire County Conservation District, we received an EBT machine early in 2017 to help local community members increase their access to fresh, local food and use their federal SNAP funds to purchase healthy food for their families.
Additionally, we are proud to also offer the Granite State Market Match program which allows SNAP customers to DOUBLE the value of their benefits at participating farmers markets, farm stands, and CSAs. For example, spend $10 of SNAP at The Winchester Farmers Market and receive an additional $10 to spend on fresh, locally-grown fruits & vegetables, herbs, seeds or seedlings. That means you receive double the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables at half the cost!!
Not only does Granite State Market Match provide access and affordable healthy, local foods for SNAP participants, it also provides economic benefits to the participating vendors/farmers and host communities. Join us as we support the growth and vitality of Winchester! For more information on this program visit: www.granitestatemarketmatch.org/
