EBT Double Value Days: an incentive program coordinated by Farmshed. FoodShare recipients can come to the Farmshed/EBT booth at the Stevens Point Farmers Market to swipe their EBT card and receive up to $10 extra in EBT tokens to use at the market on eligible food items.
The program encourages low-income community members to shop at the market for fresh, local products including fruits, vegetables, meat and eggs. The EBT program is available each Saturday, June through October, from 9 AM to 2 PM — or until vendors sell out — at the Downtown Square Farmers Market.
