Apply to Become a Market Match Partner
The Ecology Center is now accepting applications for new Market Match partners! The Market Match program provides additional money to customers who spend their CalFresh benefits at participating farm-direct sites. If you think your certified farmers' market, CSA, and/or farm stand would be a great fit for our Market Match program, now is your time to apply! Ecology Center will be accepting applications until Friday, March 26th, 2021.

We are looking for markets in areas of high need and that have had EBT access for at least one season. We are working towards an equitable, resilient, and just local food system which means that we aim to help shift conditions keeping injustice in place. Because of this, we strongly encourage organizations led by Black, Indigenous and people of color to apply. If you are interested in Market Match but newer to EBT, let us know and we can connect with you about it in the future.

Please visit our Partner Application page to access the application and instructions. Please note: This is an online application process, but we will be offering over the phone application assistance as needed.
Reach out to us at marketmatch@ecologycenter.org with any questions.
