Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Experimental Station’s Link Up Illinois Program will match even more of your SNAP/Link benefits! Previously, Link Match was capped at $25 Link Match per day, per cardholder. Now, you will be able to receive up to $25 in Link Match per swipe! So every time you visit the SNAP/Link booth, we will match dollar for dollar up to $25 in Link Match. You can even shop with multiple SNAP/Link cards and receive the match on both cards.
Please note - This is a pilot program with a limited time period.
Chicago City Markets sell fresh seasonal produce, flowers, prepared foods, unique Chicago-made products and rare finds – at Chicago’s longest running farmers market on Daley Plaza, the historic Maxwell Street Market and community markets in neighborhoods across Chicago.
