Bill Proposed To Allow Foodstamps at Farmers Markets

August 25, 2010

AB 537 was  proposed by Juan Arambula of Fresno. This Bill would allow farmers markets to accept EBT food stamp cards at farmers markets. Farmers markets are a large market for Fresno county fruits and vegetables and the Food Stamp program would be a large customer base for these products. Personally I see so many signs at fast food restaurants that say we accept EBT food stamps I would much rather see the people on this program buying fruits and vegetables at the farmers markets as it’s much healthier. The Bill was passed by the Assembly by a 43-3 vote.
