Why Farmers Markets?

CUESA’s farmers markets have remained open as an essential service throughout the pandemic, supporting local farms and providing vital access to fresh, healthy food for our communities. Farmers markets provide safe, outdoor shopping experience, and are critical to long-term food security. By shopping at your local farmers market, you help stimulate local economies, preserve farmland and rural livelihoods, increase access to fresh food, and support healthy communities.

Here are CUESA’s 10 Reasons to Support Farmers Markets. Declare your love and support of farmers markets by spreading the word!

Double Your SNAP Benefits at CUESA Farmers Markets

CUESA farmers markets accept SNAP/EBT (CalFresh/food stamps). Customers using EBT can double their dollars (up to $10 per market day) through the Market Match program, which offers free market coins redeemable only for fruits and vegetables. Visit the CUESA Info Booth to learn more.
