What is SNAP? How does SNAP work at farmers’ markets?

SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It is the federally-funded and locally-administered program historically known as “food stamps.” Throughout it’s 50+ year history, SNAP has had a profound impact on the well-being of individuals and families, providing much needed nutrients and financial stability during tough times.
