Food Access


Farmers Markets are for everyone! Enjoy the best the city has to offer from the farmers, to the activities to the delicious, healthy, local fruits and vegetables.

Double Up Food Bucks

You can get more fruits & vegetables when you use your EBT card at Kansas and Missouri farmers markets! It’s easy with Double Up Food Bucks. Stretch your food dollars for more fruits and vegetables at nearly 20 farmers markets in the Kansas City area.

How it works:

Bring your SNAP EBT Card to the farmers market office or information table before you shop
There will be Double Up Food Bucks signs that will direct you to market staff who are there to help.

Use your SNAP dollars on your EBT card to purchase $1 tokens
The market manager will give you an equal amount of Double Up Food Bucks tokens to spend on fruits and vegetables for no extra charge. Note: Earn up to $15 per day at City Market in Kansas City. All other locations match up to $25 per day.

Spend your tokens!
Look for vendors with SNAP/EBT and Double Up Food Bucks signs at their tables and use the corresponding tokens just as you would cash.

Cultivate KC Coupons

We provide matching Cultivate KC Coupons to seniors in our community who receive Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers from Kansas & Missouri. Our Cultivate KC Coupons are given to participating farmers markets to distribute to seniors so they can purchase even more fruits & vegetables in addition to their vouchers. In the last 3 years we have reached over 2,600 seniors in our community and supported local farmers with over $58,000 in fresh produce sales.

Due to Covid-19, we have adapted our Cultivate KC Coupons this year to provide direct produce deliveries to seniors through Bethel Neighborhood Center, Shepherd’s Center, and Don Bosco Senior Center. Additionally, we are raising funds to donate all produce grown at our Westport Commons Farm to Metro Lutheran Ministries food pantry and Welcome House. All of these partnering locations are seeing an increase of food insecurity in our community and we are working hard to help meet those some of those needs.
