EBT/SNAP Benefits Accepted
Due to the power outages, and displacement from homes caused by Hurricane Laura, retail food stores in the State of Louisiana may accept SNAP benefits in exchange for HOT foods and foods intended to be consumed on retailer premises. These special rules are in effect through October 1, 2020.
With the German Coast Farmers' Market Match Program, shoppers with SNAP benefits will be given $1 in Market Match tokens for every $1 spent at the market using their EBT card (up to $20 per market day). Tokens can be used to purchase any SNAP eligible products available at the market and have no expiration. Please visit our German Coast Farmers' Market Welcome Booth to use your EBT card at the market.

To Our German Coast Farmers' Market Customers
In an effort to continue operating our weekly farmers' markets and give our loyal customers access to the essential items provided by our vendors, we have implemented some changes to the market in order to keep our customers, as well as our vendors safe. These are just a few of the changes that we have implemented:
- Our Market Coordinator is constantly monitoring our patrons to ensure everyone is social distancing and there is no overcrowding in any area of the market.
- All vendors are required to wear a mask and gloves.
- All vendor booths will be placed at least 6 feet apart.
- Customers must form a single line at each booth and leave at least 5 feet between yourself and other patrons.
- Our vendors are trying to decrease your wait times by bringing in extra staff, as well as packaging items as grab-and-go. You may want to get a vendors name and contact information to pre-order items for the following market to reduce your wait time.
- All vendors will have hand sanitizer and use gloves when coming into contact with any food items.
- Vendors will not be offering samples at this time.
- There will be no outdoor seating and dining tables.
As always, we ask our vendors and customers to stay home if they are feeling ill. Thank you for
your continued support of our market, we will continue to share our vendors' essential items with you as long as we can.
