FARMERS MARKET DOUBLE BUCKS PROGRAM

Durham and South Durham Farmers’ Markets are proud to offer the 55Double Bucks program with SNAP/EBT!

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?
