A partnership between Artisan Alley Farmers Market in DeLand and Fresh Access Bucks Florida allows you to double your SNAP benefits. The farmers market now accepts SNAP benefits and matches the SNAP dollars spent (up to $40) with Fresh Access Bucks. That means if you purchase $40 worth of SNAP benefits, Fresh Access Bucks will match that $40 and give you a total of $80 to spend. The Fresh Access Bucks tokens can only be used on fresh fruits and vegetables, where as the SNAP tokens can be used on meats, seafood and other SNAP eligible items. For more information, click here.
