The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), Michigan Farmers Market Association (MIFMA) and Fair Food Network said that with the additional time, any potential lapses in the ability of farmers markets to accept food assistance Bridge Cards should be minimized or eliminated for most or all farmers markets.
Although this unfortunate situation is one that we want to ensure does not impact farmers markets again in the future, it is important to note that this issue does not affect all farmers markets and farm stands in Michigan accepting SNAP Bridge Cards, said Amanda Shreve, executive director at MIFMA. We are working diligently with affected markets to transition them to alternate equipment and service as quickly as possible.
This is an issue MIFMA has been working to improve since its inception in 2006.
