SNAP and WIC FMNP Now Available for Food Purchases
Customers who have WIC benefits or SNAP benefits through their Lone Star Card (EBT) may now make qualified purchases at the Denton Community Market. The Market received a USDA grant in partnership with the City of Denton to enable lower income individuals to purchase fresh produce and other agricultural products.
For WIC: Please visit the Denton Community Market booth near the Farmer's District entrance (near banner) to obtain a WIC FMNP Voucher booklet. Each Voucher booklet has 5 vouchers worth $6 each (total $30/voucher booklet) that can be used for qualified items: Fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Farmers that accept WIC will display a blue FMNP Poster. Ask for a list from Market staff.
For SNAP: Please visit the Denton Community Market booth near the Farmer’s District entrance (near banner) to obtain DCM $1 wooden tokens (as many as you need for purchases) that can be used for qualified items: Fresh produce, meat, eggs, honey, jams, other canned goods, plants for growing food, and baked items are all qualified items for purchase. Vendors that can accept SNAP will display a green EBT Token Poster. Ask for a list from Market staff.
We are very excited to be a source of fresh food to WIC and SNAP benefit recipients!
