2016 Double Dollars Program Starts July 3rd

We are happy to announce that this year’s Double Dollars program will begin on Sunday, July 3rd! It is also with tremendous excitement to announce that the Dane County Farmers’ Market and the South Madison Farmers’ Market is on board with the program this year.This is going to be the best year for Double Dollars yet! The Madison Area Farmers’ Market Double Dollars program provides a bonus incentive to SNAP users at farmers’ markets by providing up to a $25 match per market day when a customer uses their SNAP benefits at participating markets.FoodShare-EBT%20sign

PLEASE NOTE that Double Dollars will not be available at the Saturday Dane County Farmers’ Market on the Capitol Square until July 16th.  Double Dollars will be available at all other participating markets beginning the week of July 3rd. This year Double Dollars will continue into December or until the funding runs out. Whichever comes first!

Please share this information widely within your organization or with anyone that might be interested in using or helping to promote or support the program. PDF of flyer in English HERE.
