Accepting SNAP at Direct Marketing Sites and Farmers Markets

Direct Marketing Sites and Farmers markets can accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to create a win-win-win opportunity for their market, their vendors, and the health of their community. Accepting SNAP, which is distributed via the Michigan Bridge Card, can increase revenue for vendors, contribute to vendor recruitment and retention for the market and increase access to fresh, nutritious, local food for residents of your community. This webinar discusses how accepting SNAP benefits can benefit a direct marketing site and farmers market, the steps to getting started, and how a market can facilitate SNAP transactions between customers and vendors.
