SNAP/EBT and Granite State Market Match

SNAP 1-to-1 Match: All SNAP customers will receive a 1-to-1 match all season (regular match is 1-to-1). This means that for every dollar you spend using SNAP, you will get an additional $1 to spend on fruits and veggies. More info on SNAP can be found here.

Shopping tips:

-Shop for a friend, family member, or neighbor while you’re at market.
-Contact your favorite vendors ahead of time to set aside a product so you don’t have to worry about it selling out. We recommend giving vendors 48 hours notice if you have a request. Please note that not all vendors will take requests. To see what vendors will be at each market, check out the interactive market map.
-If you are concerned about the number of other shoppers in the market at one time, we recommend coming between 12:00 and 2:00 when the market usually slows down.
-Bring more reusable shopping bags than you think you need.

SNAP/EBT Program

We proudly accept SNAP/EBT dollars at all of our Winter Farmers’ Markets. At the market, SNAP recipients can choose how much they would like to spend that day on food purchases, with no minimum amount required. A market staff member will then swipe their EBT card for that amount. The customer is then given wooden tokens, that are used just like cash, and can be used to buy food at approved vendors at the market. Tokens never expire – if you do not use them all that day, they can be saved for future markets.  Learn More about shopping with SNAP


Performing Music at the Markets

We hire local musicians to play at all of our winter farmers’ markets in Rollinsford and Stratham. A variety of different types of music and performers help make these markets a welcoming shopping opportunity during the cold winter months.

Our schedule is fully booked for the 2022-2023 season. Musicians that are interested in performing in the future can fill out this inquiry form.
