Lexington Farmer's Market

SNAP

For 5 years, we have offered a double incentive to our snap customers encouraging shopping, cooking, and eating locally grown nutritious foods. When SNAP customers shop at the LFM, we provide them with DOUBLE their SNAP money (up to $15). Thus, one is able to purchase 30$ worth of nutrient dense-farmed foods for $15. 

As a result, our SNAP customers have been increasing annually! In 2014, we predict we will give away more than $2500, but we need help raising that money!
