The Shreveport Farmers’ Market is the only USDA-Approved farmers’ market in the Shreveport-Bossier community, which allows for acceptance and use of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Their partnerships with Greaux the Good and Louisiana Healthcare Connections will return this year, allowing shoppers with a Louisiana Purchase (SNAP) card to receive a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $20 in purchases at the Shreveport Farmers’ Market. Through these partnerships, area SNAP recipients will be able to gain access to fresh, nutritious, local produce at the Shreveport Farmers’ Market while boosting the local economy by shopping with local farmers, ranchers, and artisans.
