Loyola University Chicago Farmers Market Awarded Additional Funding to Support Link Cardholders
Double Value Coupons Now Available from Link-Approved Vendors
Illinois Link cardholders who spend up to $10 with their Link Cards at the Loyola University Chicago Farmers Market can now receive up to an additional $10 per market day, per card on Link-approved purchases. The offer runs through the end of the market season or until funding is fully-utilized.
The market was awarded backing from the LINK Up Illinois program, which helps farmers markets across Illinois with funding for double-value coupon incentive programs to incentivize the purchase of locally grown and produced foods. Targeted funding for the 2014 double-value coupons is provided by the City of Chicago and the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity.
In addition to Link Card, the Loyola Farmers Market accepts Senior Food Farmers Market and Women, Infants, and Children Program coupons.
