Put Fresh Produce on Your Menu

With Market Money you can spend your EBT dollars on beautiful, nutritious fruits and veggies grown by local farmers. You can also use your market tokens to purchase other market goods, like eggs, honey, meat, and cheese.

Support Local Farmers

When you shop at the farmers’ market you’ll buy directly from the people who grow your food, while putting money back into the community. In 2021, CalFresh participants spent over $21,000 at the farmers’ markets.
