About the Tours

The Michigan Farmers Market Association (MIFMA) will be hosting two Farmers Market Facebook live Tours to show how farmers markets can accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. The tours are an opportunity to observe and learn firsthand how accepting SNAP benefits in a farmers market setting can increase revenue for vendors, contribute to vendor recruitment and retention for the market and increase access to fresh, healthy food for your community.

Why are the Tours Important? 

Farmers markets can accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to create a win-win-win opportunity for their market, their vendors, and the health of their community. Accepting SNAP, which is distributed via the Michigan Bridge Card, can increase revenue for vendors, contribute to vendor recruitment and retention for the market and increase access to fresh, nutritious, local food for residents of your community. This live tour is an opportunity to observe and learn firsthand how accepting SNAP benefits in a farmers market setting works and see in action the many benefits of this program for shoppers, vendors and the market as a whole.

Who Should Attend?

Market managers new to accepting SNAP at their market, those interested in beginning to accept SNAP, and community organizers who work with SNAP-eligible clients.

The tours are live through Facebook, but we ask that you register for reminders and updates!
