SNAP at the Market

We love fresh, local food at the Champaign Farmers Market, and The Land Connection is committed to making this great food accessible and affordable to the whole community.
That's why we are now offering three different ways to maximize Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits on fresh, local food during our regular season at the market through the end of October.
  1. Every week, Link card holders can swipe their card for tokens that can be spent at the Champaign Farmers Market, and The Land Connection will double their purchase up to $20 in vouchers for fresh fruits and vegetables.
  2. On the second Tuesday of every month, we offer Triple Link Tuesday. That means we'll match up to $20....and then we'll match again. SNAP recipients can get up to $40 extra to spend on fresh produce!
  3. On the last Tuesday of the month, we're offering a new End-of-Month Bonus. Swipe your Link card for any amount, and not only will we double the amount, we'll add an extra $10 to spend on fruits and veggies.
All tokens and vouchers are good all season long at the Tuesday afternoon Champaign Farmers Market. 
Plus, sign up for our Winter Bonus Pilot Program. Use your Link card at least five times during the regular Champaign Farmers Market season, and you can receive $100 in vouchers for fresh produce at the indoor Urbana Market in the Square (November-April). Stop by the Land Connection tent at the Champaign Farmers Market to sign up!
The Champaign Farmers Market runs every Tuesday from 3:30-6:30pm in the parking lot by Neil & Main in Downtown Champaign through October 30. Parking is available in the northern half of the lot.
