The Salem Farmers’ Market accepts the SNAP/EBT card. The goal of this page is to answer as many questions as we can about the program and how it works. If there is anything we did not cover that you would like to know more about, visit us at our tent on Market day (Thursdays, from 3:00-7:00PM) at Derby Square or check out our About Us page for more ways to get in touch with the Market.
How It Works
Visit the Farmers’ Market table, we are located off of Front St, on the Lobster Shanty side, and ask for the Market Manager. You will pay him using your SNAP/EBT card and he will give you tokens that be worth $1, $2, or $5. Then shop using the token as cash. That is it.
One thing to note, the vendors can not give you change. If the items you purchase comes to $4.75, you will not get the .25 cents back.
