The Olympia Farmers Market is pleased to announce they have received funding to continue their Fresh Bucks Program for all of 2019. The Farmers Market will continue to match up to $20 of your EBT purchase with $20 in Fresh Bucks.

The Market will start to distribute the new 2019 Fresh Bucks this weekend at the Market office for all EBT customers. Winter Market is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. through March.

The Market thanks all for making 2018 a successful year for EBT at the Market and looks forward to another year of offering this great incentive!

Fresh Bucks provides SNAP/ EBT shoppers with extra buying power, by providing an additional dollar for dollar EBT match of up to $20 per day, per card-carrying market shopper. This additional Fresh Bucks currency may be spent with any local farmer at the Olympia Farmers Market to purchase fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, and plant starts. Just stop by the Main Office, swipe your EBT card, and receive EBT Market Tokens PLUS the additional Fresh Bucks vouchers.

Fresh Bucks is a collaboration between the Olympia Farmers Market and the Washington State Department of Health, thanks to a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture. No change may be provided from Fresh Bucks redemption and Fresh Bucks may not be redeemed for cash.
