What is Double Up Food Bucks New Mexico?

Double Up Food Bucks New Mexico is the state’s branch of the nationwide DUFB program. This program helps low income people purchase more food by giving them extra money when they shop at participating retailers.

In New Mexico, the program works at various farmers markets, grocery stores and farm stands to help you maximize your benefits.

Who is eligible?

Anyone who receives Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits can participate in Double Up Food Bucks New Mexico. You don’t even have to be a NM resident as long as you’re using your benefits at participating location in the state.

There’s no extra eligibility requirements or applications. Just show up, shop and enjoy!

How does this program work?

First, you need to find a participating location. There are currently around 80 participating Double Up Food Bucks New Mexico locations and we’ve made a list of them below for your convenience.

Your second step depends on where you are shopping.

If you’re at a grocery store, just shop as normal and then tell the cashier that you want to participate in the Double Up Food Bucks program when you check out. They’ll either give you an instant 50% discount on your eligible locally-grown fruits and vegetables or an equal amount of tokens you can redeem on your next visit to the store. Smaller retailers may use the tokens instead of the instant discount because it’s easier for the store to set up that system.

If you’re shopping at a farm stand or CSA, the process is similar. Just shop, ask about the Double Up program, and get a 50% discount on your purchase!

However, farmers markets manage the program differently because they bring together so many different vendors into one place. Rather than have to swipe your EBT card over and over at different retailers, you’ll take your card to the information booth.

You’ll swipe your card one time for whatever amount you specify. You’ll be given one set of tokens equal to the amount that you spent. This first set of tokens can be spent on any EBT-eligible products at the market. You’ll also receive a second set of tokens for free that can only be used to purchase fruits and vegetables that were locally grown in New Mexico.
