EBT cards are now accepted at some local farmers’ markets. Bucksport Bay Farmers’ Market and Ellsworth Farmers’ Market now let people use SNAP benefits to pay. The market in Bucksport is every Thursday from 2pm-6pm on Main Street, next to the post office. The Ellsworth market is Monday and Thursday from 2pm – 5:30pm at the Maine Community Foundation and Saturday from 9:30am-12:30pm at Acadia Realty. The EBT machine that accepts SNAP benefits was purchased with money from a grant from the USDA Food and Nutrition Service.
