An incentive program shoppers have seen at outdoor farmers markets is now available at Central Oregon Locavore. The nonprofit indoor farmers market announced this week that it now accepts Double Up Food Bucks, a program available for those in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, usually known as SNAP. Shoppers with SNAP earn a $1 to $1 match on fruits and vegetables they buy—so if they spend $1, they'll earn a $1 credit toward more fruits and vegetables on their next visit. Find out more from the team at Locavore or by visiting centraloregonlocavore.org
