We always accept CalFresh EBT at the Brownsville Farmers Market. You can purchase fruits, veggies, meat, eggs, honey, preserves, and more using EBT.
In addition, when you spend $20 of your CalFresh EBT benefits, you will receive an extra $20 to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables at the market with Market Match. For more information, visit the information booth and ask about CalFresh and Market Match.
Market Match is California’s healthy food incentive program, which matches customers’ federal nutrition assistance benefits, like CalFresh (formerly known as food stamps), at farmers’ markets. When customers use their benefits at farmers’ markets, Market Match provides matching funds so that they can buy even more fruits and vegetables. To learn more about the program, visit MarketMatch.org.
Market Match is a program of the Ecology Center and is funded by the California Department of Food and Agriculture through the California Nutrition Incentive Program and by the USDA through the Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program, as well as other funders.
