SNAP incentives at the farmers market

You may have heard a story on NCPR (more details here) about the state increasing funds for Fresh Connect, the program that provides a $2 bonus when a customer spends $5 of their SNAP benefits at a farmers market.

Unfortunately, no Fresh Connect benefits will be available at St. Lawrence County farmers markets, as we have been informed that the state is implementing a new rule that each market can have only one SNAP incentive program and our markets have the CNY Health Bucks program.
