Napa Farmers Market


Napa Farmers Market

What They Do:

Provide access to healthy, farm-direct produce for all. Double the assistance available to our low-income neighbors and help fill the nutrition gap. Welcome CalFresh households to shop at the market through a token-matching program that provides a dollar-for-dollar match to spend with market vendors on eligible items.

When CalFresh shoppers visit the Napa Farmers Market and swipe their EBT card to withdraw $25 from their CalFresh account, they receive $50 in tokens to spend on eligible items. They now have double the access to healthy, local, sustainably or organically grown products.

In five years, Napa Farmers Market’s token-matching program has grown from $500 to more than  $12,000. This means that in 2017, CalFresh families were able to purchase more than $24,000 in eligible items:  fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, fish, poultry, dairy products, breads, cereals, and seeds and plants that produce food.


Other Ways to Help:

The Market always needs volunteers. Volunteer activities include:

  • Children’s education
  • Produce tasting
  • Assisting with Chef Demos
  • Market set-up and breakdown
  • Tending the information booth
  • Taking customer surveys
  • Providing general assistance to the Market Manager

Shifts are a minimum of three hours. Volunteers help the market thrive and receive discounts from some market vendors.


Business Partners:

The Market’s business partner is The Peter and Vernice Gasser Foundation. The Foundation provides our rent-free location, assists with our business needs and helps promote us.


Testimonial:

More than 8,000 Napa County residents experience food insecurity. The Market's token-matching program helps these families purchase the same nutritious foods enjoyed by the more fortunate.
