Welcome to the Wahkiakum County SNAP-Ed site! We are hoping this can be a useful resource for healthy tips and recipes!
SNAP Market Match Program
Shoppers who use Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)/EBT benefits can receive EBT bucks and the same amount in SNAP Market Match dollars to purchase fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs, mushrooms, and seeds and plants that produce food at certified farmers’ markets throughout the state. You will utilize this match program every day for up to $40 per day. The closest certified farmers’ market to us is the Cowlitz Community Farmers Market, located in the Cowlitz County Fairgrounds’ parking lot and runs each year from April through October. The farmers market is open Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9am-2pm. For more information about the farmers market, visit Cowlitzfarmersmarket.com.

SNAP Produce Match Program
Now, shoppers who use Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)/EBT benefits can stretch their food budget to buy more fruits and vegetables! Look for the SNAP Produce Match logo at your local grocery store.
How It Works:
- Buy at least $10 of qualifying fruits and vegetables* with your EBT card;
