Why use your QUEST (EBT) Card at Farmers’ Markets?
Shopping at your local farmers’ market is a great way to find fresh, healthy food and get to know the people who produce it. Farmers’ markets thrive on seasonal fruit and vegetables. When fresh produce is in season, it is often at its lowest price. Buying your groceries at the farmers’ market is a great way to support your community by supporting local farmers. It is also an opportunity to catch up with friends and neighbors.
In Wisconsin, SNAP is called FoodShare. FoodShare users access their benefits using EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) or QUEST Card. SNAP provides nutrition assistance to people with low income. It can help you buy nutritious foods for a better diet.
