Spokane Public Market To Accept EBT And SNAP Wooden Tokens

SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane Public Market Press Release:

The Spokane Public Market has taken a significant step in allowing better access to the market by now accepting food stamp EBT cards. The implementation of this initiative will allow more people to experience the fresh offerings of the Spokane Public Market by utilizing food stamp benefits.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a federal Food Stamp program that allows consumers to purchase food using food stamps that are loaded onto an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. EBT card carriers may purchase $1.00 wooden tokens at the Spokane Public Market Information Booth and use the tokens to purchase qualified food products.  

The SNAP card system has reduced the stigma associated with food stamps but has also made it difficult for small businesses and markets to accept them due to the need of a Point of Service device to swipe the cards. The Spokane Public Market feels that this is a necessary addition to the market and it exemplifies their commitment to better serve the Spokane community.

The addition, the EBT card program aligns with the Spokane Public Market goal to strengthen the local economy by giving the people of Spokane the ability to access local goods while offering Market vendors the opportunity to expand their customer base.

Several other regional markets have successfully used the EBT program and the Spokane Public Market is excited at the opportunity to celebrate the products vendors have to offer by utilizing the efficiency of this program.

The Spokane Public Market is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 2007. It is governed by a board of community volunteers. Year-round hours of operation are 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Thursday- Saturday. To learn more, visit spokanepublicmarket.org, call 624-1154, visit
