Did you know that if you receive SNAP (formerly food stamps) or are over the age of 60 and low income, you can double your food money at the Rosedale Farmers Market?
The Market participates in the Double Up Food Bucks program, which matches dollars from SNAP and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) vouchers in extra money for fruits and vegetables.
How it works:
Come down to Rosedale Farmers Market with a photo ID and sign up for SFMNP vouchers. You will receive a book of vouchers to be spent at the farmers market, and the market manager will give you a second voucher to be used for fruits and vegetables. Come early in the season — limited funds are available for this program.
If you are a SNAP user, bring your SNAP EBT card to the market. For every SNAP dollar you spend at the market, you will get another dollar in market tokens for fruits and vegetables (up to $25).
The Rosedale Farmers Market is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays through the end of September, at 4020 Rainbow Blvd. (Commerce Bank parking lot), Kansas City, KS. The market is also open from 3:30 to 6 p.m. every other Wednesday at 2100 W. 39th Ave, Kansas City, KS, in front of Dykes Library.
In July, market visitors will find watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, baked goods, sauces, jams, jellies, and much more. Come meet your friends and neighbors and enjoy delicious, local, and affordable food.
