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.

Double Up is also available at select grocery stores. See how it works at grocery stores and find participating sites near you.
