LEBANON, N.H. - The Lebanon Farmers Market says they are receiving funding from the New Hampshire Foodbank, Wholesome Wave, and Upper Valley Healthy Eating Active Living to support the market's Veggie Dollar Program. 

The Veggie Dollar program allows people who receive SNAP/EBT benefits to double the value of their benefits while shopping at the farmers market. 

Customers who are interested in participating in the Veggie Dollar Program should look for the EBT and Debit machine located at booth one.

The Lebanon Farmers Market opens on Thursday, May 22 at 4 p.m. The market has local produce, prepared foods, and crafts and runs from May to September from 4 to 7 p.m. 

For more information about the program or the Lebanon Farmers' Market contact them at (603)-448-5121 or www.lebanonfarmersmarket.org.
