Double Up Food Bucks, farmers markets, and voucher programs

The Double Up Food Bucks program has started for the 2016 season and is offering a $10 match for SNAP participants who use their SNAP at a participating farmers market. In other words, recipients receive $20 worth of food for only $10 of SNAP benefits. Click here to find participating markets.

SNAP participants can go to information tent at participating farmers market and swipe their Oregon Trail Card to receive tokens that can be used to purchase any food items from market vendors and additional $2 Double Up Food Bucks cards (of up to $10) that can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables.

If you live outside of Portland, you can use http://www.oregonfarmersmarkets.org/market-finder/ to find farmers markets.
