snap program graphicI hope you’re as excited as we are about the upcoming market season.  What can be better than spending a nice spring afternoon at your local East Nashville Farmers Market– seeing your neighbors, meeting your farmer, and taking home fresh, healthy produce!

Best of all, our farmers markets will be accepting SNAP benefits, formerly food stamps, so that all Nashvillians can come out to enjoy a day at the market and take home good food.  Accepting SNAP benefits is good for SNAP participants, and it’s good for farmers’ business – it’s a real win-win.  Please visit the information booth at the market to use your EBT card to get tokens redeemable at the market vendors.

DOUBLE YOUR SNAP BENEFITS at our East Nashville Market all season long.  All customers can receive up to an additional $20.00 in market money to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables at the market.  Thanks to a generous donation by Piedmont Natural Gas, double SNAP benefits will continue all season long in 2016!  So come on out and shop at our ENM, meet your farmer and enjoy the benefits of healthy, local foods our farmers bring to the market.
