Low Income Assistance

NOTE: WIC FMNP Check Distribution will not be taking place at any Clark County farmers’ market this year, 2019.

However, we continue to ACCEPT and HONOR both WIC and Senior FMNP checks at the Salmon Creek at Legacy market, Camas Farmers Market and Vancouver Farmers Markets.

 

SNAP, Healthy Families, Senior Nutrition and Fresh Match: Making it easier to get fresh, local, healthy foods.

SNAP (food stamps):

Use your SNAP (food stamps) benefits at the Salmon Creek Farmers’ Markets on Tuesdays and at the Farmers Market at Battle Ground Village on Thursdays with these easy steps:

  1. Visit the Info/EBT/debit booth
  2. Receive wooden tokens as “market money” when you swipe your EBT card
  3. Use your tokens to buy fresh, local, healthy foods

Remember that SNAP benefits cannot be used to purchase non-food items, ready-to-eat foods or hot foods.  The Salmon Creek Farmers’ Market offers Fresh Match, a USDA-funded program that matches up to $5 of your EBT transaction with Fresh Match tokens, enabling you to buy additional fruits and vegetables.

 

Farmers Market Nutrition Program for WIC and Seniors:

The WIC and Seniors FMNP provide dollars to eligible seniors and to women with infants and children that can be used to buy produce at the Salmon Creek Farmers’ Market.  Look for the WIC & Senior Farmers Market “Checks Welcome Here” sign at farm vendors’ booths.  These vendors can accept FMNP checks.
