Local Food Incentive Programs

Posted on June 19, 2019 // view all News

Market Match helps make farmers markets more affordable.

Most Berkshire County farmers markets participate in at least one of the following benefit programs:

  • SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)
  • HIP (Healthy Incentives Program)
  • WIC Farmers Market Coupons
  • Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FNMP) Coupons

In addition, many markets provide incentive programs to increase the value of these benefits. The Market Match brochure helps people find the days, times, and locations of the markets that accept their benefits.

Markets that have a matching program are designated with the “Market Match” logo. Programs vary at individual markets, so visiting the Market Manager is the best way to get the details of each market’s program.
