BOISE — Boise Farmers Market Mobile Market, a program of the Boise Farmers Market, announced in a press release it will bring the same “delicious fresh local produce and eggs” found at the Boise Farmers Market to 13 neighborhood locations, Monday through Wednesday, beginning Monday, June 1 and ending Wednesday, Sept. 29.

The mobile market accepts EBT/Snap and there is a Double Up Bucks matching program that doubles the buying power of those who use EBT/Snap for their food dollars. If a shopper buys up to $20 using their EBT Card, the match is up to $20 in market tokens that can be spent just like cash at the Mobile Market or the Boise Farmers Market.

The full schedule of stops can be found on the Boise Farmers Market website: theboisefarmersmarket.com.

Sponsors for the 2021 season include the City of Boise, St. Lukes, Boise Co-op, Eat Smart Idaho, and University of Idaho Extension.
