Farmers' Market EBT Program


Continuing its mission to increase market opportunities for farmers and make healthy food choices available to everyone, the San Diego County Farm Bureau made it a priority to make their markets food stamp accessible.

Customers at the Lakeside, Valley Center, and City Heights Certified Farmers' Markets will be able to use their federal Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards to purchase produce.

Recipients swipe an electronic benefits card through a machine to receive tokens. Each wooden token is worth $1.

The tokens can only be used to buy eggs, fruit and vegetables. Each token has a unique serial number to prevent fraud.
