Fresh Food, Fresh Access evaluates the first year of Fresh Access, Just Harvest Education Fund’s EBT at farmers’ markets program at six farmers’ markets in Pittsburgh, using data from a combination of customer and vendor surveys, focus groups, sales figures, and on-site observations. The report details the need for increased outreach to low-income people in farmers’ market neighborhoods, implementation of a matching or incentive program for shoppers using EBT at farmers’ markets, and increased public support for Fresh Access and SNAP.
