What is SNAP/EBT?
Use Your EBT Card to Double Your Money!
Your EBT benefits are a great option when shopping at our market. You can purchase lots of healthy foods at the market with your EBT card.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and EBT benefits are a win-win situation for customers and vendors! Families who qualify for EBT/SNAP can use these benefits at our Downtown South Boston Farmers Market to purchase produce and other nutritious food. It’s easy to use your card at the farmers market.
And thanks to Virginia Fresh Match, you can now get DOUBLE your EBT benefits with SNAP when you qualify! Choose healthy fresh produce and get $20 worth for just $10. It’s one more way to stretch your dollars and eat delicious, healthy food.
Approved foods that can be purchased with SNAP include meat, dairy, fruits, vegetables, herbs, and food bearing plant starts or seeds. Hot foods, foods meant to be consumed at the market, and alcohol are not allowed to be purchased with SNAP benefits.
All SNAP/EBT benefit purchases are now made with an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which is similar to a credit or debit card linked to your SNAP benefits account. It’s easy to use your EBT card at our local Downtown South Boston farmers market so give it a try and start saving too!

What is SFMNP
The purposes of the Seniors Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program are to provide fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey through farmers’ markets, roadside stands and CSA programs to eligible ‘seniors’. The Downtown South Boston Farmers Market is proud to provide produce that can be purchased with your SFMNP dollars. When you buy locally, you get fresher produce and are supporting your local neighbors and friends who grow food.
You can use your SFMNP benefits beginning June through November 18th each year.
