The Portland Farmers' Market Association
Low-Income Food Access Program


The Market Information Booth serves as the hub of our Low Income Food Access Program

PFMA is a state recognized non-profit, and our Program operating costs are covered by our ongoing fundraising: Friends of the Market memberships, sales of Market Goods, Donations, Program Sponsorships, grant funding, and farmer support. When you support our fundraising, you are supporting the entire market community, and we thank you!
 
Please note, beginning 9/13/2021, SNAP purchases at market will receive a 50% match with Maine Harvest Bucks.

SNAP/EBT Access & Wooden Tokens

SNAP/EBT Access & Wooden Tokens

Use your SNAP/EBT card to get wooden tokens that can be used to shop at any farm vendors booth who sells food products!

Thanks to Maine Harvest Bucks, we also offer a nutrition incentive to SNAP customers. For every 10 dollars spent with SNAP at our market, we match your purchase with 5 dollars in bonus tokens to spend on fruits and vegetables at Market! 

At this time, no credit/debit tokens are available for purchase. Any purple credit/debit tokens on hand can still be spent at our farmers' booths. Most, but NOT ALL, farmers accept credit/debit at their booths. Please BRING CASH to shop with all farmers.
