The Basics

Want to spend $10 on your SNAP/EBT card? You get an extra $10 for free fresh, Florida produce! No advance sign up necessary. 






At Farmers Markets

  • Find the SNAP/EBT booth, swipe your EBT card, and get your SNAP and FAB tokens. SNAP can be matched up to $40 per market day.

  • Exchange SNAP tokens with participating vendors around the market for SNAP-eligible items: fruits and vegetables, bread products, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy products, seeds & plants which produce food to eat.

  • Exchange free green FAB tokens for Florida-grown produce, plants, and seeds that produce food.

  • SNAP and FAB tokens do not expire.

At Farm Stands, CSA's, Mobile Markets and Online Markets

  • If less than half of your SNAP total is FL-grown produce, your FL-grown produce is FREE, up to $40 per day.

  • Remember, you can get the equivalent you spend in SNAP (up to $40 per day) in FL-grown produce, so fill your cart with local fruits and veggies to get the most out of FAB.
