The ability of SNAP participants to use their SNAP benefits at farmers markets can increase SNAP participants’ access to fresh-from-the-farmer foods and increases the customer base and revenues for farmers. At the end of FY2019, more than 3,600 farmers markets and direct marketing farmers accept SNAP benefits.

SNAP participants trying to find the nearest farmers market or direct marketing farmer that accepts SNAP can enter their address into the SNAP retail locator
