Access to fresh, locally sourced foods

The Melrose Farmers’ Market recognizes the need for access to healthy and fresh, locally grown/sourced foods, especially for those at greater risk of food insecurity. The Melrose Farmers’ Market will contribute $10 per week toward your SNAP purchase. For example, instead of only having $10 to spend, now you have $20.

The MFM is piloting this with Roberto’s Seafood and Oakdale Farm. You just have to use your EBT card when Oakdale delivers your order (they also have HIP) and when picking up at Roberto’s Seafood, show your EBT card for added spending. MFM will be offering this SNAP match until the start of our summer market. We are reimbursing Oakdale and Roberto’s so you don’t have to worry about how we will give you the match.

To receive an order form weekly from Oakdale Farm, please email Laura at oakdalefarms.countrybarn@gmail.com .  This weeks form has to be filled out by the end of the day on Mondays. Deliveries are every Friday. 

For pre-ordering and Roberto’s hours in Melrose (Saturdays, 1-3 pm at Bowden Park) please email Bob at robsfd24@outlook.com or call 617.529.5701.
