Farmers Market Returns in May with Food Benefit Matching Programs

Fresh strawberries, lettuce and carrots.

The City of Rockville and Rockville Farmers Market opens for the season on Saturday, May 13 and will provide a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $20 for customers using their federal nutrition benefits.

Entering its 12th year, the Eat Fresh Rockville and Maryland Market Money program removes economic barriers for food-insecure shoppers by increasing access to fresh produce and increasing purchasing power. Customers can receive a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $20 weekly when they shop with SNAP/EBT (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program/Electronic Benefits Transfer), P-EBT (Pandemic EBT) and WIC-FVC (Women, Infants and Children-Fruit and Vegetable Checks) at the market. Matching funds can be used to purchase locally grown and produced items including fruits, vegetables, meat, cheese, dairy, baked goods, eggs and honey.

The program aims to fight hunger while investing directly in farmers, strengthening the local food system. Customers can stop by the market tent, located at the market entrance for more information. 

The market will be open 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays, from May 13 through Nov. 18, in the jury parking lot at East Jefferson (MD 28) and Monroe streets in Rockville Town Center.

The market gives shoppers their pick of farm-fresh produce and more from regional growers/producers, transforming itself weekly as fruits and vegetables become available throughout the season.
