A Whidbey Earth and Ocean Month 2022 Program promoting regenerative agriculture for healthy food and a healthy planet.
Learn more about how the SNAP EBT/Market Match and WIC/Senior FMNP programs work at Farmers’ Markets. Both South Whidbey Tilth and the Bayview Farmers’ Market welcome Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program customers, who can match their card purchases each visit when they run their card at the market’s EBT machine. The amount will be doubled up to $40 with purple Market Match currency. The matching currency is only for fresh fruits, vegetables, garden seeds and plants and nuts, while the tokens, provided when SNAP cards are run, can be used for meat, fish, dairy, baked goods, etc.
The Famers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) for Seniors or Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides eligible customers with vouchers that may be redeemed with farmers who have registered to participate at any Farmers’ Market. A sign is posted at the registered farmer’s booth. Learn what foods can be purchased, when and where.
