River People Farmers Market

A North Coast Food Web project

SNAP Match at the RPFM

market basket webThe River People Farmers Market is committed to helping everyone in our community to purchase fresh, healthy, delicious local produce. Like farmers markets across Oregon, and across the country, the RPFM hosts a SNAP Match program to help our community members stretch their monthly SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) dollars further.

With the help of North Coast Food Web’s sponsored Pie Walks and generous donations from our community, the RPFM provides $10 in matching funds each week to eligible SNAP customers.

How does it work? Go to the Information Booth at the River People Farmers Market and use your SNAP Card to purchase $1 Market Tokens.

All RPFM vendors selling fresh produce and fruit accept the $1 tokens. (Prepared foods and flowers are not eligible.) Tokens are good for the full season, you don’t have to use them up each week.

SNAP Match is available to all SNAP clients at the RPFM each and every week during market season. One $10 Match per market.

Just present your SNAP Card at the RPFM Info Booth and say “Please Match my Ten!”
