Farmer’s Market Vendors Sign Up for SNAP Equipment

Families receiving financial assistance for food through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will have more options for fresh produce in the new year.

Vendors at Kentucky Farmer’s Markets can now sign up to receive free equipment to process SNAP transactions.

Agricultural Commissioner James Comer calls it a "win-win" situation that will provide fresh, nutritious food to families on SNAP, while also improving farmer’s incomes.

Vendors and markets interested in signing up for the program can e-mail Sharon Spencer, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s farmer’s market program coordinator at sharon.spencer@ky.gov.
