About Delaware Farmers Market Federal Assistance & Nutrition Program Payment Options

farmers market food stamps sign

 CREDIT 

Of course cash is king at all Delaware 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 Delaware 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.

 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 Delaware SFMNP agency provides qualifying seniors with coupons that can be used at eligible community supported agriculture programs, roadside stands, or Farmers Markets in Delaware 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.

    For Your Shopping Pleasure at Delaware 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 Delaware 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 best.
