Markets in Ithaca, Trumansburg and Caroline accept FMNP coupons and SNAP (EBT) benefits for purchase of local foods. With FMNP coupons, you can purchase and enjoy seasonal fruits and vegetables. With SNAP benefits, visit the market manager with your EBT card to obtain tokens and use these to purchase all foods (except prepared foods and crafts). Ask vendors if they accept FMNP and/or EBT. You can stretch your SNAP budget to buy more delicious food because for every $5 purchased using SNAP, you will get an extra $2 FreshConnect check.
