There are over 40 farmers markets and on-farm markets in Oklahoma that accept SNAP benefits. To accept SNAP at your local farmers market follow these steps:
- Complete the USDA FNS application and submit the required paperwork depending on your market/farms ownership type.
- Once you receive your FNS number eligible markets/farmers will receive a free, point-of-sale EBT machine from OK DHS.
- Determine how your farm/market will administer its SNAP program and what type of script system will be used. Many of Oklahoma’s SNAP-accepting farmers markets use the token system. Click here to learn more about accepting SNAP at a farmers market.
- Promote the SNAP program at your market/farm! ONIE has many resources to help spread the word that your farm/market is welcoming SNAP benefits to Oklahoman families.
