Double SNAP

Thanks to a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, the Macon County Farmers Market will DOUBLE any SNAP/EBT dollars spent at our market this season! Just visit our Welcome Center booth during market hours, swipe your EBT card for your chosen dollar amount, and we will give you TWICE that amount in Market Tokens to be spent on EBT eligible items at the farmers market.

Produce Purchase Guarantee

A local nonprofit foundation has generously partnered with the Macon County Farmers Market to provide a Produce Purchase Guarantee for our produce vendors. For the duration of the 2024 Market Season, the foundation will purchase up to $1000 worth of perishable produce from produce vendors when the market closes each Saturday. The purchased produce will be donated to Macon County Carenet to feed food-insecure families in our county. The Macon County Farmers Market is grateful to this local foundation for its support of both our Market Vendors and Macon County Carenet.
