Why Farmers Markets?

Farmers markets support local farms and provide vital access to fresh, healthy food for our communities. By shopping at your local farmers market, you help stimulate local economies, preserve farmland and rural livelihoods, increase access to fresh food, and support healthy communities. Here are our 10 Reasons to Support Farmers Markets. Declare your love and support of farmers markets by spreading the word!

Double Your SNAP Benefits at Foodwise Farmers Markets

Foodwis farmers markets accept SNAP/EBT (CalFresh/food stamps). Customers using EBT can double their dollars (up to $10 per market day) through the Market Match program, which offers free market coins redeemable only for fruits and vegetables. Visit the Foodwise Info Booth to learn more.
