The program is called Double Up Food Bucks. It provides people who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) with a FREE match for what they spend using their EBT card at the farmers’ market.
Yes, FREE match! If they spend $20 from their EBT card, they get $20 FREE to spend on produce that same day. If they spend $40, they get $40 for FREE produce. Some markets may have daily limits, but you get the idea.
There are 33 markets around the state participating in the program. You can find a list of participating at www.DoubleUpNM.org, or see the attached list.
