Nine DC Farmers Markets Now Take EBT

This is the kind of program I think everyone can get behind. The Mayor’s Office announced this week that nine DC Farmers’ Markets now accept Food Stamps through wireless EBT terminals, allowing those accepting assistance to purchase farm-fresh produce. Participants in the District’s Double Dollars program will receive $2 for each subsidy dollar spent at the H Street Farmers Market, as well, thanks to a $20,000 grant from the Wholesome Wave Foundation. I’m all for expanding local access to the fresh and healthy produce at farmers markets.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
