SNAP/EBT Cards Get an Extra Boost at Medford Farmers Market

Subsidized food purchasing will be available at the market, with a bonus.

The Medford Farmers Market accept payments from state subsidized food-buying cards this year, with a little kicker.

Through a grant from Medford Health Matters, individuals on the state's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will receive up to a $20 match on any purchases from the market, according to a press release from health matters.

The grant is funded by Mt. Auburn Hospital in Cambridge; the money aims to promote and support health-related community projects, the release said.

The market's season kicks off Thursday, June 7 at a new location behind City Hall.

More information on the market can be found on its website.

I think its great that you can use your SNAP benefits at local farmers markets. Gives people access to healthy foods and on the flip side helps support your local businesses. http://www.localfarmersmarkets.net/
