Program runs June 16- October 2, 2015.
Spend $10 with your EBT card and get $10 to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Fresh Bucks Program gives every customer who pays with an EBT card a bonus dollar for every dollar spent (up to $10). The only thing needed to qualify for the Fresh Bucks match is an EBT card. Each customer may collect their bonus once per day.
In addition to bonus dollars, every shopper who spends $10 of their own EBT will receive a free, reusable Pike Place Market tote bag along with recipes and information on seasonal produce.
Here are the directions:
Step 1: Go to the Farmers Market information tent (see below for times and locations.) Look for a white tent with a big green sign. If you don’t see it, ask one of the farmers to direct you!
Step 2: Scan your EBT card for any amount and receive TWICE that amount in Farm Bucks up to $10 bonus. Plus a Market tote and a recipe.
Step 3: Spend Farm Bucks like cash to buy fresh produce at farm stands.
