About Connecticut Farmers Market Federal Assistance & Nutrition Program Payment Options

farmers market food stamps sign

 CREDIT 

Of course cash is king at all Connecticut Flea Markets and Farmers Markets, so you can't go wrong by bringing plenty of "all-mighty Dollars" with you.

But if credit cards are accepted, you have the added benefit of a Federal law which limits your losses due to fraudulent credit card transactions to only $50. And there may also be protection through your credit card company against disputed charges or quality of goods. Something to think about in case you happen upon a big ticket item like furniture, tools, or antiques.

So plastic may be the way to go in some cases.

 WIC 

WIC or "Women, Infants, and Children Program" is a Federal assistance program for postpartum non-breast-feeding, breastfeeding, or low-income women or infants and children (up to 5 years old) found to be at risk for nutritional deficiency.

Your Connecticut WIC agency may provide nutrition education, health care referrals, or supplemental food vouchers good at your local Flea or Farmers Market via your state's WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program.

Learn more about the WIC program


FAQs about the WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program


Find your WIC FMNP participating state agency

 SFMNP 

SFMNP or "Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program" is a Federally funded nutrition program designed to assist low-income senior citizens (generally 60+ years of age).

Your Connecticut SFMNP agency provides qualifying seniors with coupons that can be used at eligible community supported agriculture programs, roadside stands, or Farmers Markets in Connecticut for purchase of "fresh, unprocessed, and nutritious fresh-cut herbs, honey, fruits, and vegetables."

Non-eligible items include: wild rice, molasses, maple syrup, cidar, nuts in any form, dried herbs, dried fruits & vegetables, and potted herb plants, vegetable plants, or fruit plants.

Learn more about the SFMNP program

Only state agency authorized farmers markets, road-side stands, and CSA's may accept or redeem SFMNP coupons. Individuals reselling produce grown by others do not qualify to accept or redeem SFMNP coupons.

Contact your SFMNP participating state agency if you would like to inquire about getting a farmers market, road-side stand, or CSA program qualified for SFMNP participation.

 SNAP 

SNAP or "Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program" (formerly the Food Stamp Program) puts healthy food within reach for 28 million people each month via an EBT card used to purchase food at most grocery stores.

Through nutrition education partners, SNAP helps clients learn to make healthy eating and active lifestyle choices.

  • Food Stamp Cards, otherwise known as SNAP EBT or "Electronic Benefits Transfer" is accepted at a growing number of farmers markets and retail food stores. Find out how your market or store can be authorized to accept SNAP payment.
  • Contact your local market locations ahead of time to find out whether SNAP EBT payments are accepted.
  • Usually when paying with SNAP EBT cards, cash can not be given back and only eligible SNAP foods may be purchased at the point of sale.

  • More Resources to Help You Find Fresh Local Foods Produced by Sustainable Agriculture, Join the Slow Food Movement in Your State!

    organic farm greenhouses

    By regularly visiting your flea or farmers markets you will likely be supporting your local economy, environment, and the small farm families that take great pride in the bounties of the Earth they cultivate.

    Organic farm

    Local fresh organic foods grown in harmony with nature is at the heart of the growing sustainable "slow food" movement.

    You too will reap what you sow when you resurrect and cultivate the wise and frugal by-gone era family tradition of practicing a weekly "Market Day" in your town.

    Find More Sustainable Local Food Sources (in addition to the above state farmers markets):

    I set up the following app to simultaneously search all the below top ag-related websites to find the best sources of all types of fresh local food. Give it a try and see what nearby fresh food sources pop up...

    Your Local Food Finder

    Enter your town, county, state, or zip code, and specific keywords related to the type or source of sustainably grown food you seek. For example: "free-range eggs washington dc"






    Sources integrated into the above Local Food Finder App:

    The National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service has an excellent resource to help you find local food directories and related promotional programs in your state.

    LocalHarvest.org is another excellent resource for finding sustainably grown local foods such as grass-fed meats, fresh honey, free-range eggs, local dairy products, and organically grown herbs, vegetables, and fruits.

    As their name implies, they make it easy for you to find local harvests from nearby small farms, meat processors, wholesalers, grocery co-op's, CSA's, restaurants, and farmers markets.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service administers all sorts of local and national programs to help bring growers and consumers together. 






    For Your Shopping Pleasure at Connecticut Farmers Markets Consider the Following Shopping Carts, Trolleys, Reusable Tote Bags, Hand Trucks, and Baskets

    farmers market shopping utility cart

    Take it from me, carrying just a few pounds of farmers market finds like bags of fresh fruits and vegetables will tire your arms out very quickly, put more strain on your feet, and will have you wishing you had prepared ahead of time to bring some sort of market bag, basket, or wheeled shopping cart.

    Below are some suggested items for making your market stroll a lot more convenient, efficient, and enjoyable. I particularly recommend one of the below shopping carts with folding chair built in.

    You can always tell who the more savvy Connecticut Farmers Market shoppers are because they will be the ones hauling their goodies around in the collapsible trolleys, strollers, shopping carts, and market baskets.

    (you can place your cursor over each item for more details and a bigger image, or use the search box to find something else.)

    Tip: Old Baby strollers and beach carts are also great for hauling things at flea or farmers markets. Something durable, light-weight, collapsible, and easily able to roll across rough pavement or gravel is a good idea.



    What a Great Idea! Rolling Carts With a Chair. Haul It and Then Have a Seat When You Need a Rest...
