The Norton Friends and Farmers Market is proud to accept SNAP/EBT benefits. Please visit the welcome table and one of our volunteers will assist you in using your federal benefits card. Learn more about the SNAP/EBT program.
Virginia Fresh Match
Additionally, a grant from Virginia Fresh Match allows us to match the first $25 in SNAP benefits that you spend on fruits and vegetables at the market. Learn more about the Virginia Fresh Match program.
For customers that qualify for Mountain Empire Older Citizens’ (MEOC) assistance, we offer Senior Tokens. Senior Tokens are given to customers when they present their MEOC voucher book to a market volunteer. The market volunteer will then issue you five tokens. Each token is worth $1 and can be spent on fruits, vegetables, bread, meat, cheese, and eggs. Senior tokens will be available until funding runs out.
We also offer Kids Bucks for children ages 1 to 15. Each child can receive five tickets each week. Each ticket is worth $1 and can be spent on fruits and vegetables at the market. Kids Bucks will be available until funding runs out.
