FARMERS MARKET DOUBLE BUCKS PROGRAM
Durham and South Durham Farmers’ Markets are proud to offer the Double Bucks program with SNAP/EBT! Shoppers swipe their SNAP/EBT card at the information desk for any amount and the Farmers’ Market doubles their money up to $10. That’s up to $10 to buy more local fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, eggs and much more! Out of SNAP benefits? No worries! Durham Farmers' Market will double your cash too! Additionally, WIC participants who receive FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Program) coupons, will get those coupons matched at the Durham Farmers' Market ($4 for every $4 voucher). Where?
- Durham Farmers’ Market:
501 Foster St
(for SNAP, SNAP cash, WIC FMNP, and WIC cash)
- South Durham Farmers’ Market:
5410 NC Highway55 (for SNAP only)
FARMERS MARKET TOURS
A first time visit to the Farmers’ Market can be daunting. Fear not! We can show you the ropes.
Grocery Store tours
Learn how to shop healthy on a budget with a fun tour through the grocery store! After an interactive discussion, participants get to take $10 worth of healthy food home, as part of a fun $10 challenge! Tours are conducted in English and Spanish. Registration is required.
Nutrition classes (such as food demos and tastings) are offered to pantry operators and their clients; assistance with environmental changes such as creating a client choice (supermarket style) pantry, and connection to various resources are some of the ways we assist our Durham pantries. If you manage a food pantry and would like more information on this program please use the contact below.
