A Food Access Partnership between LO Farmers’ Market and Whole Foods Market Pacific Northwest
The federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides low-income households with electronic benefits that they can use to purchase eligible foods at most grocery stores and participating farmers’ markets. In the state of Oregon, these SNAP funds are administered through Oregon Trail Cards. The LO Farmers’ Market accepts Oregon Trail cards. Cardholders may purchase $1 tokens, which may be used in lieu of cash to purchase eligible goods at the Farmers’ Market.
SNAP MATCHING: Through a generous partnership with Whole Foods Market Pacific Northwest, the LO Farmers’ Market offers a weekly match program of up to $10 per SNAP purchase. Any remaining $1 tokens displaying the 365 by Whole Foods Market logo may be used to purchase eligible foods at the 365 by Whole Foods Market store.
How it Works:
- Go to the Parks & Recreation Merchant Services Booth (located next to the pergola) at the Market.
- Swipe your Oregon Trail card for tokens to buy SNAP eligible foods.
- Through the partnership with Whole Foods Market Pacific Northwest, the LO Market will match up to $10 a day for eligible foods.
- Shop at the LO Market!
- Any remaining $1 tokens displaying the 365 by Whole Foods Market logo may be used to purchase eligible foods at the 365 by Whole Foods Market store, which is located at 11 S State Street in downtown Lake Oswego.
What can I buy with my SNAP dollars?
Fruits, vegetables, breads, meats, fish, poultry, dairy products and seed plants that produce food for the household to eat. Alcohol, hot foods, and nonfood items including artisan goods are not eligible. No change may be given for $1 tokens. Special thanks to Whole Foods Market Pacific Northwest for their generous support!
