The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, connects citizens in need to fresh, local foods. Select Fairfax County Farmers Markets offer a SNAP matching program as an incentive to shoppers. Customers can charge their EBT cards at the SNAP Information Table and receive DOUBLE the amount to purchase extra fruits and vegetables. We currently have SNAP programs at our McCutcheon/Mount Vernon, Annandale, Reston and Lorton locations. Volunteers run the SNAP booths where customers swipe their EBT cards to redeem tokens to spend at the market.
Parking is available along North Shore Drive. There is also a nearby parking lot with convenient access to the Reston Farmers Market.
STEP 1: Exit the parking area where the Market is and go left on North Shore Drive, through the traffic light by the Fellowship House.
STEP 2: Take the first left turn after the traffic light and go straight up the hill by the office building and park.
STEP 3: Walk down the steps behind the Washington Plaza Baptist Church to the Plaza and turn left to go into the Farmers Market.
“We're able to grow our own herbs with plants purchased through SNAP at the Lorton Farmers Market. The vendors there have lots of helpful information about plant care and healthy eating. We look forward to regular visits with them to buy our fruits and vegetables.” – Anonymous SNAP customer
