Discounted Museum Admission in California

One of the great benefits of the California EBT Card is access to great tourist, cultural, educational and adventure museums. You get discounted admission to museums, zoos, aquariums and many more.

Currently, there are over 121 locations offering free or discounted admission to Calfresh EBT Cardholders.

The California Museums listed below all offer individual admission fees ranging from FREE to $3.00 to individuals and families who have an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a valid form of photo ID.

This reduced rate is available during all normal operating hours to up to four individuals per EBT card. That means if you have a family of 4, you can use your Calfresh EBT card to get the special discounted rate or free admission for all four members.

We advise that you call the museum first before you go – so that you can find out what their special rate is for EBT Card holders (whether it’s free admission or $3).

Farmers Markets EBT Match

A great way to stretch your food stamps benefits is to shop at farmers markets. There are many advantages that come with buying produce and other food products at farmers markets. One of the biggest of those benefits are farmers markets that match EBT card spending.

Currently, there are over 248 farmer’s markets in California that double your Calfresh EBT benefits. Customers who spend their CalFresh EBT benefits at participating farmers’ markets can double their food dollars.

Here’s how it works. Participating farmers markets will match what you spend with your EBT card, up $15 per visit. This means you are doubling your buying power – allowing you to get twice as much food and you only pay half the price.

The following farmers markets in California offer the EBT matching program (also called Market Match) – up to $15 per visit, meaning that if you spend $15 on your Calfresh EBT Card, you get $15 more in produce. Therefore, for the first $15 you spend per visit, you get $30 worth of food.
