Market Central Cville offers extra benefits for SNAP recipients
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Market Central farmers market at Charlottesville’s IX Art Park is offering some big benefits for SNAP recipients.
Customers can use their benefits to buy SNAP-eligible food and receive double value matching coupons for items like fruits and veggies. That means someone who uses $40 worth of SNAP benefits would actually receive $80 worth of tokens to spend at the farmers market.
The market runs from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. each Saturday at Charlottesville’s IX Art Park.
