SNAP at the ABFM

The ABFM is very happy to accept SNAP benefits for purchase of all eligible items at market. If you know someone who uses SNAP, please let her/him know that we welcome SNAP use, and will "match" up to the first $10 a user spends at market — increasing the purchasing power of people and families to secure whole, fresh foods. Come to the ABFM stall at market to learn more about SNAP at the ABFM, and/or read more at our website.
