We are proud to be a Produce Perks market! With support from the City of Columbus, the Franklin County Commissioner, and Wholesome Wave, Produce Perks provides individuals enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) with a monetary incentive to purchase fruits and vegetables at 14 participating farmers markets throughout Central Ohio. This year, Clintonville Farmers' Market can offer SNAP customers a $1-for-$1 match up to $20 per market; incentive tokens may be used to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables.
Produce Perks has benefits to shoppers and growers alike. Incentives allow more customers the opportunity to purchase the healthy, locally-grown ingredients that had previously been cost-prohibitive. Additionally, increased sales to new customers also make both growers and farmers’ markets more economically viable.
SNAP customers can swipe their cards at the market information tent located on W Dunedin Rd during market hours.
