Downtown Roanoke, Inc. (DRI) is excited to announce the return of the Member One Mega Market Match! On Mega Market Match days from 9 am – 2 pm, when users purchase EBT/SNAP tokens, they will receive a dollar-to-dollar match, up to $100 per person! That means for each $1 purchased, users will receive an additional $1 EBT/SNAP match to use with our wonderful Historic City Market vendors.

Over the past several years, Downtown Roanoke, Inc. (DRI) has implemented SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) on the Historic Roanoke City Market. This federal nutrition program helps users stretch their food budget while buying healthy food. Our participation in this program provides access to locally grown, healthy foods and helps support our local farmers and producers. DRI currently provides matching funds of up to $20 for SNAP users to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables on the Historic City Market every day.

Mega Market Match days are May 11th, June 15th, July 13th, and August 10th. On these days, DRI will be passing out recipe cards with recipes featuring in-season ingredients at each Mega Market Match Day. This means visitors will go home knowing how to make two meals using local ingredients.
