Double Up SNAP Benefits this Summer!

 

Get FREE fruits & veggies with DOUBLE UP FOOD BUCKS!

Using your SNAP benefits is quick and easy at Houston Farmers Markets!

Buy any SNAP-eligible foods with your SNAP card and get FREE Double Up Food Bucks to spend on fresh fruits & veggies at participating farmers markets across Houston (up to $20 per day).

When you arrive at a participating farmers market, simply stop by the green Urban Harvest tent to exchange your SNAP benefits for $1 or $5 coupons to spend on eligible products. These coupons do not expire, so you can spend them the same day or save for another time!

When you use your SNAP card at farmers markets, your buying power is doubled!  That means twice the amount of fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, diary products and more compared to other grocery stores.

Farmers markets not only support local farmers and merchants, but provide a source of healthy food options for the whole family.
