Eat healthy foods by shopping at your local farmers' market.
What are farmers' markets?
Farmers' markets are outdoor markets where local farmers sell their food. They are open for a few hours each week.
Can I afford to buy fresh fruits and vegetables?
Yes! Fresh food in season often costs less than at a supermarket.
Can I use CalFresh and my EBT card at farmers markets?
Yes, CalFresh monthly benefits can be used to buy any SNAP eligible foods (i.e., fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs, honey) at farmers markets that accept EBT. Check in at the farmers market information booth to swipe your EBT card and receive EBT tokens or vouchers to purchase items directly from the farmers market vendors.
How do I get CalFresh and an EBT card?
You can apply for CalFresh even if you're working. If you have family they may also apply for CalFresh. Call the Food Bank at 855-309-3663 to learn how to apply.
