Top 5 Reasons to use your EBT Card at the Hawi Farmers Market

by Leslie Nugent

  1. It’s easy! You can use your EBT card at the Hawi Saturday Farmers Market to get Kohala Food Bucks which can be used to purchase food.  Over 110 customers used their EBT card at the farmers market last month.
  2. It’s healthy! The Hawi Farmers Market is a great place to find fresh, healthy, and delicious foods.  You can use your EBT card to buy fresh food directly from the farmers and producers, guaranteeing the highest nutritional quality for you and your family.
  3. It’s delicious! You can use your EBT card to buy fresh foods that you can’t find anywhere else such as; local made kalo and ‘ulu chips, fresh poi, coconuts, Kohala grown macadamia nuts, all kinds of fruits and vegetables, local free range eggs, fresh fish and meat, fresh baked breads, homemade jams, jellies and syrups, bags of coffee and tea, and much more!  You can even use your EBT card to purchase plants and seeds that produce food for your garden.
  4. It’s local! When you use your EBT card at the Hawi Farmers Market you support our local farmers and small businesses, keeping more money here in Kohala.  In January over $3,000 was directly distributed to our Hawi Farmers Market vendors through the EBT program.
  5.  It’s fun! Get to know our local vendors, find out about community events, and enjoy all the delicious flavors of Kohala!
