For Farmers Market Managers:
Check out our resource page for access to tools and insight on building SNAP and incentive programs!
Is your market interested in accepting SNAP? If so, first check out Virginia Cooperative Extension’s EBT Toolkit for Farmers Markets (which includes a step-by-step EBT manual and SNAP marketing templates). If you manage a market in Virginia, your market is eligible for free SNAP EBT equipment through the Virginia Department of Social Services (contact Claudia Jackson).
Does your market already accept SNAP, but doesn’t yet offer nutrition incentives? We’re always looking to expand our network to new markets. Please Contact Us today.
Does your market already offer nutrition incentives, but you want to reach even more SNAP customers? VCE’s SNAP Self-Assessment tool (see EBT Toolkit) can help your market attract and retain more SNAP customers.
Be sure to check out the Virginia Farmers Market Association’s Resources for Market Managers, which include the Market Manager Certification program and Farmers Market Metrics.
For Grocery Store Operators:
Interested in offering SNAP incentives at your store? Virginia Fresh Match is working with grocery stores to offer discounts or coupons on fresh fruits and vegetables for SNAP customers. If you are interested in becoming a grocery partner (or know of a store you would like us to reach out to), please contact our program manager.
