Food Access — SNAP & WIC at the Markets

Double Up to $30 SNAP Lonestar Dollars at Texas Farmers’ Markets

Texas Farmers’ Market (TFM) at Lakeline & Mueller accepts SNAP Lonestar Dollars via the Double Up Food Bucks Austin program. Shoppers can double up to $30 of their SNAP Lonestar benefits for fresh fruits and vegetables every market day!

Just bring your LoneStar card to the information booth at TFM at Lakeline on Saturdays 9am-1pm or TFM at Mueller on Sundays 10am-2pm. TFM’s bilingual Food Access Associates will withdraw benefits to spend at the market and automatically double your dollars for fresh fruits and vegetables to be used immediately or at a later date.

WIC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program April — October!

The Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) is a program funded through the Texas Department of Agriculture that provides $30 voucher booklets to WIC eligible clients. FMNP vouchers can be used for the purchase of fruits and vegetables at Texas Farmers’ Market (TFM).

How is this program separate from the SNAP Lonestar card program? Running April through October, you can take your preapproved FMNP shopping list from your local WIC clinic to the information booth at TFM at Lakeline on Saturdays 9am-1pm or TFM at Mueller on Sundays 10am-2pm to pick up your vouchers to spend at the markets. TFM’s bilingual Food Access Associates will distribute FMNP vouchers and automatically double your dollars to be used immediately or at a later date. Benefits can be spent through October 31st but are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

While currently unable to give out basic WIC benefits, TFM is proud to distribute and accept FMNP benefits which are given to qualifying WIC users in addition to their regular WIC benefits. Find out more about FMNP here.

We appreciate our community partner, Sustainable Food Center, for helping us offer FMNP benefits and the Double Dollar Incentive Program to shoppers at our markets.
