Making California’s Farmers Markets Accessible to All 6.8.2018 American Prospect
Elias Funez/The Union via AP A busy farmers market in Nevada City, California Last month, a complex government contracting decision created tumult in the farmers market world by threatening the ability of  nearly 2,000  markets across the country to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, formerly known as food stamps. However, thanks to a resilient state program, only one of those markets was in California. The U.S. Department of Agriculture runs a program in which private contractors provide software and Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) processing equipment to farmers markets. But as the Prospect  reported  last month, the federal government abruptly changed its contract, forcing one major software company to announce it was going out of business during prime market season. The nonprofit Farmers Market Coalition began to  crowdfund  for markets to buy new equipment, and the National Association of Farmers Market Nutrition Programs and the  state of New Y ork   hashed  out ...

The SNAP Crisis at Farmers Markets Across the Country 19.7.2018 American Prospect
Edwin Remsberg / VWPics via AP Images Crates of green peppers, cucumbers, peaches and tomatoes for sale at a farmer's market in Westminster, Maryland  It’s a sunny Friday afternoon in the North Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh, where the North Side farmers market sets up each week. As shoppers mill about to music that’s wafting over from a nearby festival, a long line has formed at the tent operated by Just Harvest, a local anti-hunger nonprofit. Surrounded by a couple dozen vendors selling fresh produce, baked goods, cheeses, jams, and jellies, Just Harvest staff assist recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, previously called food stamps) so that they’ll be able to use their SNAP benefits to buy any fresh food item at the market. But farmers’ business at the North Side market and other such markets across Pittsburgh—and the thousands of SNAP participants that buy from them—are currently threatened by an Agriculture Department contracting decision. Because of a change in ...
