Is the market open if there is inclement weather?
We are open rain or shine every Wednesday (Downtown) and Saturday (Old Salem)! Make sure to check our Facebook page for any last minute information on weather.
Cobblestone is primarily a cash/check market with an available ATM for withdrawal that supports the market. Several of our vendors use the Square program to accept cards.
How do I use my SNAP/EBT card at the market?
SNAP/EBT (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program/Electronic Benefits Transfer) is an electronic system that allows a recipient to authorize transfer of their government benefits from a Federal account to a retailer account to pay for products received.
Please come to our market Information Booth to access funds from your SNAP/EBT card at the market. If you choose to withdraw $5.00 or more from your SNAP/EBT card, you will be given an additional $5.00 market match to spend in the form of our market tokens. These tokens can be spent at any point during the market season (April-November), at the Saturday and Wednesday markets as well as at our special holiday season Pop Up markets in December.

Please bring your FMNP WIC (Farmers Market Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children) coupons to the market. You may take your valid FMNP coupons to our Information Booth at the market where we can show you how to use your valid coupons and double the value of your coupons. For example, for every $4.00 coupon you have, the CFM Food Access Program will give you an additional $4.00 market match to spend in the form of our market tokens. Coupons can purchase fruits and vegetables. The additional wooden tokens can be used to purchase fruits, vegetables, meat, cheese, bread, and jam.
