Member One FCU Title Sponsor of City Market Saturdays on the Historic Roanoke City Market

Roanoke, VA – Member One Federal Credit Union is the title sponsor of the “City Market Saturdays” series, organized by Downtown Roanoke, Inc.  Member One's City Market Saturdays showcases a variety of entertainment on the Historic Roanoke City Market.

A portion of Member One’s funding will help sustain the SNAP program, now available for use at the Historic Roanoke City Farmers Market.  Visitors who are on the EBT/SNAP program can purchase EBT/SNAP tokens and receive a dollar to dollar match, up to $10 per person, per day.  For each $1 purchased, recipients will get an additional $1 EBT/SNAP credit to use with the various Historic City Market vendors.

Other events at Member One's City Market Saturdays include live entertainment, “How-to" Workshops, cooking demonstrations, family days, and much more. All activities take place on the Roanoke City Market from 11:00am - 2:30pm. For a complete schedule of events, visit Downtown Roanoke Inc., Member One's City Market Saturdays.

More Farmer’s Markets are beginning to accept EBT/SNAP benefits and allow recipients to gain access to local fruits, vegetables and seasonal product options.  This initiative encourages consumption of locally grown, fresh and healthy foods.
