Market '17 Plans Begin

We had the first 2 meetings of the Board for the 2017 Tonasket Farmer's Market season on 3/ 6 and 4/3, where we decided the Spring Vendors Meeting will be April 27 (see our Vendors page). The Plant Sale and Market Opening days will be either the 2nd or 3rd Thursday in May--it depends on weather and what growers will have ready. Stay tuned!

We will again accept SNAP and WIC when we re-open in May 2017


We began being able to process WA EBT cards in July of 2016, and want folks to know we will accept WIC and SNAP next season, as well..

HOW IT WORKS: Shoppers simply swipe their SNAP/EBT cards at our INFORMATION BOOTH and receive WOODEN TOKENS, good only at our Tonasket Farmers Market. SNAP Tokens can be accepted for all 'take home to eat' foodstuffs (produce, meat, cheese, canned and baked goods), but no hot/deli/restaurant items (like coffee and sandwiches), live animals, or plant starts. Note: Vendors cannot give change for these Tokens, so spend in whole dollar amounts only.

We also participated in Food For All’s FRESH BUCKS, a matching program which helped SNAP/EBT shoppers stretch their Market dollar by 40%! For every $5 of wooden SNAP Tokens purchased $2 in Fresh Bucks were given. Fresh Bucks could be used to purchase fruits, vegetables and edible plant starts. We hope this program will be available again in 2017.


SEE YOU IN MAY AT THE 2017 MARKET

Board meetings are held the 1st Monday of each month, at 1pm, at the CCC. Our meetings are open to the public, as the board strives to serve both its vendors and the customers who shop with us.

To fit your topic into the agenda, and do any necessary research, it helps to let us know beforehand. We ask you submit any grievance, complaint, or suggestion for improvement in writing. The board will discuss it at our very next meeting, and respond within a week after that meeting.
