BONUS BUCKS: LOCAL FOOD BONUSES
We provide Bonus Bucks nutrition incentives at farmers markets across RI to shoppers who receive federal Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. We also accept SNAP and offer Bonus Bucks on curbside pickup purchases through our Market Mobile service. Offering these incentives helps local farmers sell more and make fresh, nutritious food more accessible to the community.
Ready to shop at a farmers market with your SNAP/EBT card? We provide a 100% matching bonus on SNAP purchases at participating farmers markets across the state. That means for every SNAP dollar spent, shoppers get $1 free in Bonus Bucks to spend on fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs from local farms.

Support for Local Food Bonuses
We believe that everyone should be able to take part in the bounty grown in our region. Farm Fresh RI is able to offer the Bonus Bucks program thanks to financial support from many funders, including federal grants and private fundraising efforts. Every donation helps provide more fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables to families in need.
