Market Moolah/SNAP

Enjoy the convenience of shopping with our own market currency which you can purchase with a credit/debit or EBT/SNAP card at the Market Manager Tent.  Market Moolah tokens can be used to purchase goods at the market without having to use cash or your credit/debit/EBT card with each individual vendor.

The Braintree Farmers Market has obtained a permit from the United States Department of Agriculture to participate in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program commonly referred to as SNAP. This program administered by Food Nutrition Services will allow individuals participating in the SNAP program the convenience of purchasing locally grown produce and certain products from our vendors. Participants will be able to swipe their SNAP card though a machine and exchange credits for coins which will be accepted by vendors participating in the program. This machine will also accept debit or credit cards thus allowing any visitor to the market the option to purchase coins to make purchases. The coins are referred to as Market Moolah.
Do you want to boost your SNAP/EBT dollars?  You can at the Braintree Farmers’ Market (BFM) with our matching EBT Program.   Liberty Bay Credit Union and donations made by market visitors are currently sponsoring the matching program. For every SNAP/EBT dollar spent the BFM will match it up to $15.  This will expire when the funds are gone.  Only one transaction per week.  Simply purchase your EBT tokens at the Market Manager tent and our cashier will handle the rest.

Would you like sponsor our SNAP/EBT matching token program?  For any amount, we will mention your name on our website, facebook and the market.   What a great way to help our community and help provide healthy market foods for everyone.  For more information on becoming a sponsor please contact us at food@braintreefarmersmarket.org  Thanks to everyone for supporting the Braintree Farmers Market.

Information about the program is available during market hours at the Market Manager / Market Moolah Tent.

  1. I plan on attending the Farmer’s Market Saturday, June14, for the very first time ever (looking forward to it!) and I just want to be sure on payments at each stand. Just to clarify, I will not be participating in the SNAP Program so do I have to pay in cash or can pay using my debit/credit card or check? Thanks for your help!

  2. Any type of payment can be used with the vendors. If you would rather not pull out your cash, credit card or check book with multiple vendors you can purchase tokens called ‘Market Moolah’ at the Market Manager’s Tent for customer convenience. Market Moolah tokens are $5 each and can be used with all vendors.

  3. What about the new HIP program? I usually spend more than $15,00 for produce.
