2023 Season Starts May 4!
Using your SNAP EBT in Miami is easy at the Farmers Market. When you come to the farmers market, bring your SNAP card to the information table with the sign that says "SNAP/EBT Accepted Here" before you start shopping. Then, swipe your card at our portable EBT processing machine, and you will receive a specific amount of $1 SNAP tokens, in the amount you requested, to spend with the vendors at the market. Any unused tokens may be kept for the next time you shop at the market. Tokens are specific to each market, so you may only use Ottawa County Farmers Market tokens at our market.
Each vendor booth has a sign identifying the vendor, where they are from, and what tokens they accept. Just look for the $1 SNAP token on the vendor signs to know if they accept SNAP benefits.
SNAP-eligible foods include fruits, vegetables, herbs, honey, nuts, jams, jellies, packaged baked goods, meat & eggs, plants that grow food, and seeds that produce food. Alcohol, foods meant to be eaten on site, and non-food items like crafts & jewelry cannot be purchased using SNAP benefits.
The Ottawa County Farmers Market is a “Double Up Oklahoma”-participating market. That means that we match the amount of money you take off your SNAP card with a matching amount of Double Up tokens (up to $20 each market).
Vendors with a “Double Up” token on their vendor sign are happy to accept Double Up Tokens.
Double Up-eligible foods are fruits, vegetables, fresh herbs, plants that grow food, and raw nuts.
The Oklahoma Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides a $50 EBT debit card to eligible seniors. This card can only be used to purchase locally grown produce, raw honey, and fresh-cut herbs.
Are you eligible for SFMNP?
How do I apply for SFMNP membership?
In 2022, Oklahoma moved the SFMNP participant application online. The 2023 season applications will become available March 15, 2023. If you would like to apply, please complete the online application at https://oklac.org/ebt
Please note: Seniors must reapply each season. The number of applications each year is dependent on funding & redemption rates. Once the applications are approved, $50 preloaded EBT cards are issued to participants in June.
Seniors can then bring their cards to the farmers market information table with the sign that says "SNAP/EBT Accepted Here" to swipe their card and receive Senior Farmers Market tokens in the amount requested. Tokens are then used to pay vendors for purchases.
