"What makes the farmers markets such a special place is that
you're actually creating community around food"
- Bryant Terry

The Bridgeport Farmers Market Collaborative is a network of farmers markets that improves access to locally-grown produce and makes it more affordable, while supporting the local economy and building community across the city.

Our markets accept SNAP/EBT, WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks, Bridgeport Bucks, cash, credit, and debit. Our markets also operate a SNAP matching incentive program through CT Fresh Match. For every $1 in SNAP benefits used, $1 is matched towards the  purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables. 

Please visit the Welcome Table at each market to get your SNAP matched!
