OUR MISSION

 

The Board of Directors of the Benson Farmers Market, a Nebraska nonprofit corporation, adopted this Mission Statement as the Preamble to its Bylaws on September 14, 2011:

The Mission of the Benson Farmers Market is to provide a venue where our community can access fresh, locally-grown foods and artisans' goods and services. 

The Market supports neighborhood outreach, wellness, and health by hosting family-friendly events that invite participation from the community at large.

The Market creates a place that is welcoming and that encourages direct relationships between producers and consumers.

In this spirit, the Benson Farmers Market has developed its website as an interactive social network. We invite you to share our vision and join our journey.  Become a member today─just click on "Sign Up" in the upper right-hand corner of this page.

CREDIT/DEBIT & EBT CARDS!

The Market accepts credit and debit cards on behalf of its vendors for all purchases.  For shopping, denominated tokens may be purchased at the Market booth and will be accepted by any Market vendor.  Large purchases from a single vendor can also be paid at the Market booth.  There is no charge to either vendors or customers for this service.

The Market honors EBT cards for qualified purchases under the USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly called "food stamps".  EBT cards may be used at the Market booth to purchase specially-denominated tokens that can be used to purchase foods and food plants. 

WIC & SENIOR VOUCHERS

The Market also provides special tokens to redeem Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) and WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program (WIC FMNP) vouchers.
