Palm Springs Certified Farmers’ Market
August 13 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
All of our Farmers own and operate State Certified Farms. Some are certified organic, and all hold State and County Certificates guaranteeing that what you buy is grown on their California Farm.
Our Certified Farmers Markets have been offering the Calfresh/ EBT, (formerly known as food stamps) program option in all three of our markets since 2011. Each year through grant funding, we are blessed to be able to offer some form of incentive to Calfresh EBT users to help extend their produce buying dollars in our markets. This comes in form of a match per dollar spent to an extra $10.00 per customer per market. This match has come from various sponsors over the years. For the years 2015-2017, we are very happy to be part of the Market Match program run through The Ecology Center out of Berkley California.
Market Match is California’s healthy food incentive program, which matches customers’ federal nutrition assistance benefits, like CalFresh and WIC, at farmers’ markets. In 2015, Market Match will be offered at more than 230 sites, across the state, by 30 community-based organizations and farmers’ market operators.
Make sure to go by our market information booth at any of our markets to have your Market Match benefits doubled to buy fresh, local produce!
