LITTLE ROCK – Eligible Arkansas farmers and farmers markets can sign up June 5 to
become authorized to handle Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, transactions.
Accepting SNAP at farmers markets helps low-income families to buy locally grown fresh
products, while supporting state farmers and farmers markets. Those interested in
SNAP authorization are asked to answer pre-qualifying questions before the sign up
day by logging on to www.nafmnp.org/marketlink. Farmers are also asked to bring r 501C3 or 501C6 forms to Sign-Up Day.
The Arkansas Department of Human Services and the University of Arkansas Cooperative
Extension Service are facilitating the one-day sign up sponsored by USDA-Food and
Nutrition Services, and the National Association of Farmers Markets. The sign up will
be held at the state headquarters of the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension
Service, 2301 S. University Ave., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
“This program not only helps SNAP participants access fresh, healthy foods, it also
provides an alternative revenue stream for farmers markets, which can help make the
market more viable for farmers and the community,” said Rosemary Rodibaugh, a nutrition
professor for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
“A growing number of farmers markets are redeeming SNAP benefits,” she said.
Qualified farmers markets and farmers who choose to work with MarketLink will receive
a new iPhone, data services, card reader and other equipment needed to process EBT,
debit or credit card transactions.
To RSVP and learn more about the sign up day, email email@example.com or call 501-682-8288.
