Multiply your 3SquaresVT/SNAP dollars with Crop Cash at your local farmers market!

When you spend 3SquaresVT/SNAP benefits at a participating farmers market, you'll receive extra money to spend on local fruits, vegetables, herbs, and culinary seeds and plant starts. Markets will match up to $20 of your SNAP benefits per day. So, if you were to spend $20 of SNAP benefits at the market, you can get an extra $20 of Crop Cash (for fruits/vegetables)!

Anyone who receives 3SquaresVT/SNAP benefits* is automatically eligible to get Crop Cash at a farmers market—there is no additional application for this program.

*Folks who receive their benefits as EBT Cash or Direct Deposit can still receive Crop Cash coupons. Simply let the market staff know that you receive your benefits in this form and either 1) swipe your EBT Card (if you receive EBT Cash) or 2) pay with cash/check/debit (if you receive direct deposit) for the amount you want to spend in SNAP benefits. They will then give you $1 SNAP tokens and Crop Cash coupons.

3SquaresVT, also known as SNAP/EBT (formerly known as food stamps) helps limited-income individuals and families buy the food they need. Benefits are generally provided on a card that functions like a debit card, and are accepted at most grocery stores and many farmer’s markets. Here is a list of food items that SNAP/EBT can buy.  For more information and assistance applying for 3SquaresVT benefits, visit the Vermont Foodbank website.
