We Accept SNAP

The Market at Pepper Place is committed to improving access to fresh, healthy foods for all members of the Birmingham community. Accepting SNAP benefits and offering Double Up Food Bucks is a concrete and meaningful way for The Market to act upon our values and work toward a healthier city.

Here’s how it works:

SNAP/EBT BENEFITS

Bring your EBT card to the Info Tent to purchase Market Tokens on Saturday. Tokens act like cash at the Market and can be used to shop for any SNAP eligible items. Plus, they never expire so you can use leftover tokens on your next visit!

STRETCH YOUR FOOD DOLLARS WITH DOUBLE UP FOOD BUCKS

We’ll match what you spend at the Market with free Double Up Food Bucks – up to $20 per visit. Use them right away or later on to buy Alabama grown fruits and vegetables.

Support for this program was provided by a grant from Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and the Baptist Health Foundation.
