Snap Matching Funds

Stretch your SNAP benefits by shopping for fresh foods at your local matching Farmers’ market! While most of Oregon Farmers’ markets accept SNAP benefits (also known as Food Stamps, EBT or Oregon Trail), many also offer a matching program, which doubles SNAP purchases dollar for dollar up to a certain amount — meaning you could get $10 worth of food for only $5 from your SNAP account.

To learn more about starting a SNAP incentive program at your local market, visit Oregon Farmers’ Market Association for a planning guide.
