SNAP | EBT
We accept SNAP/EBT benefits at both the Keller Market House and Lancaster Farmers Market. We also participate in the Produce Perks program.
Produce Perks Midwest is a regional program that makes healthy foods more available while supporting local farmers. Produce Perks doubles the purchasing power for SNAP recipients – providing a $1 for $1 match for families and individuals. Click here for more info and other Produce Perks locations. If you’re interested, ask us for details or pick up a flier in the market house.
At the Keller Market House, if you spend your SNAP dollars (EBT, P-EBT, or Ohio Direction Card) on any food, we can match the amount you spend – up to $25 per day – with a voucher that you can use for free fresh fruits and vegetables.
You can also use your SNAP funds and receive Produce Perks at the Lancaster Farmers Market outside on Saturday mornings!
How to use your Ohio Direction Card SNAP/EBT benefits at the Lancaster Farmers Market
Get started by visiting our Market Info Tent for details and to swipe your EBT or P-EBT card. You’ll get wooden tokens in exchange for your SNAP benefits that you can spend with any of our food vendors.
With Produce Perks (see above), each time you use SNAP, we can match the amount you spend – up to $25 a day – with green tokens for free fruits and vegetables.
If you ever have any questions about how anything works, please ask a market helper! We want you to get the most out of your visit!
August 13th: Free Fruit & Vegetable Program
In addition to our usual Produce Perks double-up green tokens, our market will be participating in a special Fruit & Veggie Program coupon distribution on Saturday, August 13th.
If you are eligible, you will receive $240 worth of coupons you can use at farmers markets throughout this season for free fruits & vegetables.
You may be eligible if your income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level AND you have a minor child in your household or are pregnant. You do NOT have to be eligible for SNAP to be eligible for this program. Please note: a limited number of coupons will be available. While supplies last.
Come to market on the 13th to see if you are eligible. If so, you will receive your coupons that day and can start shopping right away!
Please note: You do not need to bring any particular paperwork with you, but come prepared to provide your social security number and your household monthly income. A limited number of packets will be available – first come, first serve for eligible adults. Please visit the Market Tent to complete a brief eligibility questionnaire with Produce Perks staff.
