Lone Star Food Stamps
The Coppell Farmers Market accepts the Lone Star Card, thus allowing Texas food stamps customers to use their benefits at the market. The farmers market encourages everyone to purchase wholesome foods direct from local farmers and producers. “We want everyone in our community, regardless of income, to have access to quality, nutritious foods at our farmers market,” said Karen Pearsall, Chair of the Coppell Farmers Market Committee.
Lone Star card customers participating in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) can use their EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) card, formerly known as food stamps, to purchase $1 tokens at the Coppell Farmers Market table in the pavilion. The tokens can be used like cash with market vendors for food items and potted vegetable and herb plants. Any tokens that are not used may be returned to the table for credit back on the card, or kept for future shopping trips.
