Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP) EBT cards can be used at select Fairfax County Farmers Markets. We match SNAP benefits so you can purchase fruits and vegetables for free!
Four Fairfax County Farmers Markets offer a SNAP Matching Program where you can double your SNAP Benefits. Thanks to partnerships with Virginia Fresh Match, FRESHFARM, Cornerstones, Arcadia and Britepaths, you can use your EBT card in the McCutcheon/Mount Vernon, Annandale, Reston and Lorton Farmers Markets. Simply swipe your EBT card for your desired amount and receive tokens worth double that value. For example, if you charge $20 to your card, you will receive $20 in ‘SNAP’ tokens and $20 in ‘Match’ tokens to spend in the market. ‘SNAP’ tokens can be spent on any SNAP-eligible item, while ‘Match’ tokens can only be spent on fresh fruits and vegetables.
Visit the Farmers Market SNAP page for more information on the SNAP Match program and a list of the SNAP locations. If you have questions, please contact Farmers Market Coordinator Caroline Hockenberry at Caroline.Hockenberry@fairfaxcounty.gov.
