The farmers market accepts EBT/Snap and offers a Double Up Bucks matching program. The program matches how much someone spends with their EBT/Snap with market tokens that can be used like cash at either the Mobile Market or the Boise Farmers Market.

This is the fifth season for the mobile market. Last year, they served over 2,600 people, who bought more than 8,800 pounds of fruits and vegetables.
