How It Works - At Most Markets
When you use a SNAP Bridge Card to shop at a participating location, the amount of money that you spend is matched with Double Up Food Bucks. Double Up Food Bucks can then be used to buy fruits and vegetables that have been grown in Michigan. Maximum $20 per day. You do not need to use your Double Up Food Bucks on the same day you get them. Scroll to the bottom of this page to watch a fun, short video about how it works!
Visit the Bridge Card booth or tent at your market and get Bridge Card tokens which can be used to purchase any SNAP-Eligible items at the market.
Get an equal amount, up to $20, of Double Up Food Bucks tokens to buy fruits and vegetables from Michigan.
Spend your tokens with vendors at the market. DUFB tokens are for Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables only. Bridge Card tokens can be spend on any SNAP-eligible food items.
How It Works — Electronically
Only a few markets in the state use an electronic system. Markets using an electronic system are noted with an * on the Location page.
