Food Stamps, also known as SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, provides food assistance to low-income individuals and households through an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card known as the Horizon Card.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
STEP 1 - Bring your SNAP EBT Horizon card to the farmers market info booth before you shop.
STEP 2 - Decide how much money you would like to spend. The attendant at the booth will swipe your card for the requested amount and will give you wooden tokens worth one dollar each that you can use to purchase food from vendors at the market. You can use the tokens right away or save them for another day.
DOUBLE YOUR SNAP/EBT DOLLARS!
With Double Up Food Bucks, you can get up to $30 of FREE Utah-grown fruits and veggies - per market day - when using your SNAP (food stamp) EBT Horizon card at Sunset Farmers Markets. The program works by matching SNAP benefits, dollar-for-dollar, up to thirty dollars per market day at participating markets. The matched benefits, known as Double Up Food Bucks, can be used to purchase Utah-grown fruits and vegetables.
The Utah Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is a new produce incentive program offering $50 to qualified seniors to spend at authorized farmers markets. SFMNP vouchers can be spent on fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey.
