Farmer’s Market Now Accepts Food Stamps

Shoppers can buy fresh products

Visitors to the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market can now pay for produce, meat and other products with a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) card. The market is open from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through October at Boscobel on Route 9D in Garrison, and from November to April at St. Mary’s Church in Cold Spring.

To use SNAP benefits, visit the Market Table to purchase wooden tokens for $1 each. The tokens can be used as cash at market booths that display a sign “EBT Tokens Accepted Here” to purchase fruits and vegetables, breads, fish, baked goods for home consumption and dairy, maple and honey products.

Unused tokens may be exchanged at the Market Table for a refund credited back to the benefits card, or saved for later visits. To learn more about SNAP benefits, visit fns.usda.gov.
