Food Justice and Food Equity

Food justice and food equity means that everyone should have access to healthy and affordable foods, and that farmers and other laborers along the food supply chain path should be kept safe, healthy, and compensated for their efforts. 

One way this is practiced at the SWFM is through providing a $15 SNAP Match. We wish we lived in a world where everyone was able to afford the food they needed, but until then we appreciate our sponsors and community members coming together to help SNAP benefits stretch a little bit further. 

Another aspect of food justice and equity is supporting local farmers who are farming in a way that cares for the earth and for people. When consumers buy local food, they get to know their farmers and the farming practices that the farms employ. We as shoppers are that much closer to the supply chain, taking out the middlemen of grocery stores and mass transportation. Knowing our farmers means we can ask and ensure that the laborers along the way are treated fairly and justly. T
hank you to our community for continuing to shop with us, and for your support of food justice and equity!

SNAP + HIP Benefits
The SWFM accepts both SNAP and HIP benefits! Please see our vendor list here to see which vendors accept SNAP and HIP.

In collaboration with the City of Somerville and Somerville Farmers Market Coalition, the CAA and SWFM proudly provides a $15 match for SNAP shoppers. This means that a recipient who swipes their SNAP/P-EBT card for $15 receives an additional $15, thereby enabling them to spend up to $30 at each market during the season. To claim SNAP tokens at the Somerville Winter Farmer Market, please see Steve at the SNAP Booth.

Please note: customers looking to process SNAP/EBT can enter the market downstairs to come to the SNAP booth.
