Nutrition Programs at the Tuesday Market

The Bloomington Parks Foundation is continuing its support of the Double Market Bucks program at the Tuesday and Saturday Farmers' Markets doubling Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits at the Market, up to $27 per Market day. SNAP participants may use up to $27 in EBT benefits to purchase up to $54 in "Market Bucks", which are gift certificates that can be used just like cash to purchase qualifying items from Market vendors.

The Bloomington Community Farmers' Market is furthering its mission to support access to nutrition for vulnerable populations by using a grant from the Bloomington Health Foundation to triple Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program benefits for low-income seniors and Women, Infants and Children (WIC) participants. The Bloomington Health Foundation in January 2020 awarded a grant for $79,976 to the Bloomington Parks Foundation to be used for tripling these supplemental nutrition programs at the Farmers' Market in 2020 and 2021. Eligible WIC participants are issued Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) vouchers that can be used at Market for the purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables. Because of this grant from the Bloomington Health Foundation, WIC clients will be provided a coupon which triples the value of their FMNP benefits. That coupon can be exchanged at the Farmers' Market for "Market Bucks", which can be used like cash at the Market to buy food from participating vendors.

The grant also provides for the tripling of Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program vouchers, offered through the Area 10 Agency on Aging.
