Calfresh, Market Match and WIC Food Benefits Are Available!
Many people are aware that our Sunday Farmers’ Market offers a cornucopia of fresh, healthy organic produce, eggs, and juices as well as a variety of baked goods and flowers. Few are aware that for those who qualify, the SNAP program (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) provides financial assistance for those of us in need as defined by federal guidelines. “Calfresh” customers use federal nutrition incentives distributed in wooden tokens to purchase food and may also receive up to $10 in “FINI Market Match” tokens for fresh produce purchased directly from the farmers. “WIC” families can also redeem the nutrition currency provided through the program at the Farmers’ Markets. This includes the monthly Fruit and Veggie Checks and a $10-for-$10 cash match when “Market Buck” tokens are purchased.
Thanks to the Certified Farmers’ Market for bringing economic support to small family farmers and for nourishing Coachella Valley residents. Old Town La Quinta is a proud sponsor of the Farmers’ Market!
