Market Market Money Available at 4 Farmers Markets in Prince George’s County

by Maryland Farmers Market Association

This year the Maryland Farmers Market Association (MDFMA) is proud to once again offer Maryland Market Money, thanks to the generous support of the Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHI), at 4 farmers markets in Prince George’s County.

During the 2014 farmers market season, customers who spend their SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), WIC-FVC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program for Women, Infants, and Children-Fruit and Vegetable Checks), or FMNP-Senior/WIC (Farmers Market Nutrition Assistance Program-Senior/WIC) benefits at market will be eligible to receive up to $10 per customer, per market, in Maryland Market Money while funding is available. Maryland Market Money may be used on SNAP eligible items throughout the duration of each respective markets season.
