America’s Farmers' Markets and direct marketing farmers are a great source of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods. FNS is committed to expanding access to such food for SNAP recipients while supporting economic opportunities for farmers and producers. Use the interactive map to locate participating Farmers' Markets and retailers in your area.
Applying to become a SNAP retailer is an important decision. FNS works closely with retailers to fight fraud and to limit the errors Farmers' Markets may make through lack of training, attention to basic instructions, or poor supervision.
