SNAP Program - The Dedham Farmers Market accepts SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program formerly known as Food Stamps) for purchases of food or plants that grow food.
2 for 1 match! Every SNAP dollar will be matched by a FREE "Dedham Dollar" (up to a cap of $10 per person per market day and program cap).
HIP Program – You can use your SNAP benefits to buy fruits and vegetables from our 2 HIP (Healthy Incentives Program) authorized farms:
MacArthur Farm & Oakdale Farms
You will receive $1 for each dollar you spend on eligible fruits and vegetables, up to a monthly limit. If you are a SNAP household you will be automatically enrolled in HIP.
Important to know:
• You must have a SNAP balance to earn the HIP incentive benefit.
• Your monthly cap is based on your household size:
Household Size HIP Monthly Cap
- 1-2 persons $40
- 3-5 persons $60
- 6+ persons $80
This amount will be credited back to your SNAP account. Use this extra benefit right away or save it for another shopping trip.
