*About the Tours *
The Michigan Farmers Market Association (MIFMA) will be hosting three
Farmers Market Tours to show how farmers markets can accept Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. The tours are an opportunity
to observe and learn firsthand how accepting SNAP benefits in a farmers
market setting can increase revenue for vendors, contribute to vendor
recruitment and retention for the market and increase access to fresh,
healthy food for your community.

*Who Should Attend?*
Market managers new to accepting SNAP at their market, those interested in
beginning to accept SNAP, and community organizers who work with
SNAP-eligible clients.
*These tours are free, but we ask that you register! *
