Coupon Rules

Look for vendors who have yellow & blue Farm to Family signs posted.

They may only be used at participating farmers markets and farm stands.

They may only be used to buy fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and fresh-cut herbs. “Fresh” means just picked- sold raw and unprepared.

Farmers may not give change for a coupon. If what you want costs a little over $6, it’s better to pay the extra in cash than waste part of a coupon. Bring some cash/change with you!

Anyone who buys or sells a coupon may be disqualified from the program and subject to legal action.

Coupons expire on October 31st each year, so make sure you get to the Farmers Market or Farm Stand for your fresh, local foods before then.

Coupons are distributed on a first come first serve basis. Once a site is out of them, they are gone. So apply early!

Vermont EBT Cards

Use them at the Farmers Market, too!

Most markets accept the Vermont EBT card. Look for the EBT/debit card table at the market. You can get tokens you can use to buy produce at the market there. The $1 tokens may buy foods eligible for the 3SquaresVT program and sold by any vendor in the market. The $5 tokens are for EBT cash accounts and may buy any product sold at the market. All EBT markets also offer bonus Crop Cash coupons to 3SquaresVT shoppers.

The tokens & coupons may only be spent at the market where you got them.
