VCE and SNAP at local farmers’ markets

Bonus Cash for SNAP/EBT Purchases

Local farmers’ markets are a great way to get great produce and support local farmers but did you know that Arlington and Alexandria Farmers’ markets accept SNAP/EBT (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) cards for purchases? SNAP/EBT customers can purchase farm fresh produce at local area farmers’ markets and get matching bonus tokens to add to their purchases.

Virginia Cooperative will be on-site at several local farmers’ markets of Alexandria and Arlington to provide more information on SNAP and offer food tastings, prizes and more!

  • Arlington Farmers’ Market, N 14th & Courthouse Rd – 2nd Saturday of the month
  • Old Town Farmers’ Market, 301 King St – last Saturday of the month
  • Columbia Pike Farmers’ Market, 2820 Columbia Pike – 3rd Sunday of the month

Virginia Cooperative Extension’s varied programs are all supported by community volunteers. No experience is required to volunteer; VCE provides training and volunteer resources. Interested volunteers can find out more at
