Special SNAP Offer
The ABFM accepts SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits. The market is a great place to use SNAP: by shopping for the freshest produce (which lasts longer in the fridge), you get terrific nutritional bang for your buck. The ABFM is sponsoring a special offer for SNAP users: we'll double the value of the first $10 you spend in SNAP benefits at market. So if you decide to spend $15 at market, you'll actually get $25 to spend. [This offer lasts until we distribute the allotted $400 for the season.] Come to the ABFM stall at market for details!
