Veggie SNAPS / Produce Perks

tokens.jpgWe are proud to be a Veggie SNAPS / Produce Perks market! With support from the City of Columbus, the Franklin County Commissioner, and Wholesome Wave, Veggie SNAPS 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. Clintonville Farmers' Market offers SNAP customers a $1-for-$1 match up to $10 per market; incentive tokens may be used to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables.

Veggie SNAPS 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.
