Food Assistance Programs

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is easy to use your Electronic Transfer Benefits (EBT) card to buy fresh, healthy produce and other foods at the Everett Farmers Markets.

ebt-token-150x150To use your benefits at the Everett Farmers Market, simply go to the Market information booth, tell the staff how much money you would like to spend, and they will swipe your EBT card for the amount you request.

 $1 and $5 red tokens are available for SNAP/EBT

You will then be given tokens for the amount to buy fresh produce and other foods at the Market.  The tokens never expire. Hundreds of SNAP/EBT users around Snohomish County use their benefits at a Farmers Market each week to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.

Note that you cannot use your EBT tokens to buy flowers or other non-food items or ready-to-eat/take-out food.

If your total is less than your token’s value, you can add a small item to your purchase, or more pay the difference in cash.
