Farmer's Market Offering Incentive Program for SNAP Customers

(Gillette, Wyo.) Last weekend the Campbell County Master Gardener's Farmer's Market, or the "Saturday Farmer's Market," kicked off its 2016 season. What you may not know is that for those of you that utilize the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, every dollar you spend is matched by the market. If you bring your SNAP EBT card to the Master Gardener's Booth this Saturday, you can receive incentive tokens up to $10 for shopping at the market. You can use the tokens right away, or save them for later. The hope is that as many customers as possible can access fresh produce to take home to their families each week. The market runs from now until October 8th, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. every Saturday. It's on the Tech Center side of the college, on 4-J Road. #county17 #news
