STROUDSBURG – Beginning this Saturday, May 1, Monroe County SNAP beneficiaries can double their SNAP dollars at the Monroe Famers Market.
There are no forms to fill out. Beneficiaries simply cash in up to $20 of their SNAP benefits and receive tokens for twice the amount cashed in. The tokens are good for purchases of fresh fruits and vegetables at the market.
This opportunity is available thanks to sponsorship by the Lehigh Valley Health Network and Pocono Mountains United Way in collaboration with the Monroe Farmers Market.
The Monroe Farmers Market is a producer-only market now in its 40th year. Their producer-only vendor policy means shoppers have access to high-quality, locally grown produce and other locally sourced products. It is on Courthouse Square in downtown Stroudsburg every Saturday, May 1 through November, from 8 am until Noon.
