     Title: market match - meeting shoppers halfway

Right now, folks can come to the Crescent City Farmers Market, swipe their food stamp card (Louisiana Purchase Card) at the Welcome Tent, and the Market will match up to $25 for every market visit per household – enabling families to double their purchases of fresh, local food! This offer is good while supplies last.

Market Match was launched by to increase spending power of EBT/food stamp cardholders at our farmers markets, as a part of a strategy to bridge new communities to farmers markets and inform policy makers on the importance of food access programs that include small farmers and fresh local foods.
