SNAP Users Receive Double the Amount Swiped
The Manchester Community Market offers a discount program that makes purchasing produce at the farmers market a more affordable option for SNAP recipients. We double the amount that you swipe on your card, which is an amazing benefit that we are pleased to offer!
The Granite State Market Match Program
Using your EBT card at the market is EASY! Watch the video to the right as the customer swipes $10 on her EBT card, and receives $20 in tokens to be spent at the market. The additional $10 is for fresh fruits and vegetables only.
There is no limit on your shopping at the market with your EBT card. You can swipe $50, and receive $100, or swipe $100 and receive $200. Many people take advantage of this wonderful opportunity, and cook and freeze their food, enjoying it all year long.
Green and Red Tokens
When you swipe your card, you will receive both green and red tokens. Say for example, that you swipe $10.00. You will receive 10 RED TOKENS. These tokens are worth $1.00 each and they can be spent on any non-carnival food item at the market.
You will also receive 10 GREEN TOKENS. The green tokens are worth $1.00 each and they can only be spent on fresh fruits and vegetables. An easy way to remember this is that vegetables are green, so green tokens can only buy fresh produce!
All tokens can be used that day, or saved to purchase others items at a later market. Tokens do not expire.
It is important to know that coin change is not given when spending EBT/SNAP tokens.
We have staff available at the market to help explain how it works and answer any questions you may have.
