Changes Afoot at the Market
We are excited to announce a couple of changes at the market in order to make getting healthy local food to you easier, as well as more affordable!
Double Up Food Bucks
Starting with the first Summer Market on May 1 we will be a participating market with Double Up Food Bucks!Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) is a program that “matches” SNAP benefits spent at participating farmers markets. For every $2 of SNAP benefits you choose to spend, you’ll get a match of up to $10 in DUFB that you can spend on fruits and vegetables. So, if you spend $10 in SNAP benefits, you’ll get an extra $10 – FREE – that you can use to buy more produce.
When you use your Oregon Trail Card SNAP benefits at a participating market, you’ll automatically get an equal value of DUFB, up to $10. DUFB are the look and size of a playing card, and are worth $2 each for fruits & vegetables.
Since DUFB are $2 each, Make sure you ask for an even number of SNAP benefits so we can give you the full match. If you ask for $5 in SNAP, you’ll only get $4 in DUFB, but if you ask for $6 from your SNAP Card, you’ll get $6 in DUFB. For more information visit doubleuporegon.com.
