SNAP & Double Up Food Bucks

SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the program formerly known as food stamps.
Nourish Knoxville accepts EBT/SNAP at all our markets through a token-based, centralized system. Visit the information booth at the farmers’ market to swipe your EBT card to use your SNAP dollars. You’ll receive SNAP tokens to spend with vendors at the market on any SNAP-eligible foods or food-producing plants.

Double Up Food Bucks is a SNAP-doubling program offered at farmers’ markets and grocers across the country. Nourish Knoxville offers DUFB at all our markets, as well as at partner locations across East Tennessee. Provided in partnership with the Fair Food Network.

How it works at farmers’ markets:

Customers bring their EBT card to the information booth at each market to swipe for tokens at their desired amount. These tokens can be spent on any SNAP-eligible foods at the market. The market will give the customer up to $20 per day in FREE tokens to be used on any fresh fruit or vegetable at the market. Get $10 in SNAP tokens, and you’ll get an additional $10. Swipe for $20, get $40! Tokens can be spent at any of the participating markets or farm stores and should be used by the end of the calendar year.

How it works at farm stores:

At check-out, customers can use their EBT card for SNA-eligible purchases. After paying, the store will give you up to $20 in matching DUFB tokens. The tokens can then be used on any fresh fruit or vegetable at the store or at participating farmers’ markets by the end of the calendar year.
