Oh SNAP! The Tiffin Seneca Farmers’ Market Accepts SNAP!


The Tiffin Seneca Farmers Market is a vibrant community gathering where you can find a diverse range of locally grown produce and meat. With its convenient location on Madison Street between Jefferson and Washington, this market is a must-visit for food enthusiasts.


When you get to the farmers market, head to the Market Bank Table to exchange your EBT card for SNAP tokens, which are accepted by most vendors. Each token is worth $1, and can be used to buy any SNAP eligible items. Shopping for fresh produce has never been easier.


While at the Market Bank Table, ask about Produce Perks - a free matching program that doubles your SNAP dollars up to $25. For every SNAP token you use, you'll get another one free to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables. Use them to stock up on the best produce of the season.


Find delicious, locally grown fruits and vegetables at a variety of stands throughout the market. Try something new or pick up your favorites. Indulge your sweet tooth with homemade pastries, bread, and other baked goods. Perfect for a special treat or to share with friends and family.

SFMNP and WIC-FMNP Vouchers The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program helps low-income seniors access locally grown fruits and vegetables, and supports our local farmers and farmers' markets. Eligible participants receive ten $5 coupons to use at participating farmers' markets and roadside stands. Coupons can be redeemed for Ohio-grown fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and honey. Vouchers may be redeemed beginning June 1, 2021 and are valid through November 30, 2021. This program is administered by the local Area Agency on Aging and you can apply to receive these vouchers with their office here. Ohio WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) provides nutritionally at-risk women and children with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from farmers’ markets and farm stands. This is accomplished through the issuance of four $5 coupons that eligible WIC participants may take to contracted Ohio farmers or markets to redeem for fresh, unprocessed fruits, vegetables and herbs. Participants receive supplementary nutrition education on the importance of these foods in their diets. Currently, only the highest risk participants of the WIC program, those being pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, some children and infants, receive benefits. ​ Credit Cards/Gift Cards While many of our vendors individually accept credit cards, our Market Bank allows you the ability to shop the market universally, without cash. This also works as our gift card program, you can now purchase tokens to gift to any Farmers Market lover in your life while supporting local small businesses. If you are interested in using this as a holiday gift, please contact our market manager manager@sccommonground.org. ​
