Participants of the Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) Program and recipients of food assistance (SNAP) can get special benefits at Boulder County Farmers Markets.
Clients receiving food assistance (Food Assistance) can use their EBT card at the Boulder County Farmers Market to get SNAP bucks to purchase EBT-eligible foods. For every dollar withdrawn from a SNAP account, SNAP recipients will receive Double Up Food Bucks (up to $20) which can be used to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.
Look for the EBT sign at the Boulder and Longmont Farmers Markets to get started.
Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) participants can ask their WIC educator for coupons for the Farmers’ Market. WIC coupons can be used to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, and eggs.

Benefits of Farmers Market Produce
- Farmers market produce is more nutritious. As soon as fruits and vegetables are picked, they start to lose some of their vitamins.
- Fruits and vegetables from the farmers market taste better because they are allowed to ripen on the plant, rather than in the store.
- Buying from the local farmers market helps to support small family farmers. Buying directly from farmers reduces costs to them and helps them continue growing healthy, nutritious food for our community.
