Martin's Groceries Donates $1000 for Foodbucks



The Indiana County Farmers' Market Foodbucks Program allows SNAP users to double their dollars towards fresh produce, providing greater access to healthy local food for people facing food insecurity. 

It is with great appreciation that we say, "Thank you!" to Martin's Groceries of Indiana, PA for their generous $1000 donation towards our Foodbucks Program. We are so pleased that their team members chose our Farmers' Market for this donation. The Farmers' Market is dedicated to feeding our neighbors and so is Martin's. 

When you're looking for those grocery items that we do not have at the market, be sure to stop by Martin's on Oakland Ave to see their great offerings.

Thank you for your donation, Martin's!

Foodbucks Program


ICFM Foodbucks Program

Foodbucks are an incentive for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients to shop the market. For each dollar in tokens you receive from swiping your EBT card, you increase your buying power by receiving an additional dollar in Foodbucks! We want to help make fresh, local foods more accessible to everyone.

How to get Foodbucks:

  1. Stop by the market info booth and swipe your EBT card for the amount of your choosing.
  2. Receive tokens in $0.50 increments for the amount you requested
  3. Receive Foodbucks equal to the amount you got in tokens - DOUBLING your market dollars!
  4. Shop at participating vendors and enjoy the freshest local produce around!
  5. Tokens do not expire. If you do not spend your market money, you can use it next week, next month, or even next season

Notes for users:

  • SNAP customers may not receive change from vendors when using tokens.  SNAP tokens may only be used to purchase food items that fit requirements of the SNAP program (i.e. fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, vegetable plant starts, etc.)
  • Cards will be accepted at Saturday morning markets ONLY, however tokens can be spent on both Wednesdays and Saturdays with participating vendors.
  • Participating vendors will post a sign in their booths stating that they accept market tokens. A list of participating vendors is also available at the Market Information booth.
