Bath Farmers’ Market is accepting donations to sustain the SNAP market token program. This program has been very popular and we continue to offer our market tote bags as a way of sustaining the program. Anyone who makes a minimum donation of $12 will receive a Bath Farmers’ Market tote bag as thanks for your support.
Whoever receives the 200th bag will find a surprise reward inside the bag! Over 120 market tote bags have been distributed so far.
Our market tote bags are individually cut, hand-stitched and screen-printed by Enviro-Tote™, Inc., a woman-owned and operated company in New Hampshire. They are sturdy, gusseted, cotton canvas bags, with ample room for your market purchases. The graphic design printed on each bag celebrates the Bath Freight Shed, winter home of the Bath Farmers’ Market.
This market tote bag meets the requirements of the new City of Bath ordinance for reusable shopping bags, set to go into effect on Earth Day, April 22, 2018.
The tote bags are available at the Market Information Booth.
This program is a collaboration between Bath Farmers’ Market and the Bath Freight Shed Alliance. Volunteers from the Bath Freight Shed Alliance provide market tokens to customers in exchange for SNAP and credit card swipes. Under our SNAPMatch program, SNAP recipients receive bonus tokens worth 50% of the amount they purchase (for example, an additional $5 worth of tokens if they purchase $10), up to $15 a week. As a result, the fresh, healthy, local food at the Bath Farmers’ Market is affordable to all members of the community.
