City Green’s statewide Good Food Bucks SNAP nutrition incentive program, which helps shoppers purchase more fresh produce, has expanded to more ACME Markets in New Jersey. Good Food Bucks is now available at ten more ACME stores across the counties of Cape May, Cumberland, Hudson, Ocean, Salem, and Sussex. The program was piloted at the ACME stores in Browns Mills and Fort Lee in January, but has now expanded to twelve total ACME stores.


Here is the full list of ACME stores participating in Good Food Bucks:

Bergen County

Burlington County

Cape May County

Cumberland County

Hudson County

Ocean County

Salem County

Sussex County​​


This expansion is the result of a growing partnership between ACME Markets, a subsidiary of Albertsons Companies, and City Green's Good Food Bucks program. Through the Good Food Bucks program at these ACME Market locations, anytime a shopper spends $5 of their SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits to purchase eligible fresh produce and enters their ACME loyalty phone number at checkout, they will automatically earn a $5 Good Food Buck coupon on their transaction at the bottom of their receipt. Good Food Buck coupons can be redeemed for more fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs, including pre-cut raw fruits and vegetables. You can learn more in our previous blog post about our ACME partnership.


ACME Markets, along with other grocers, farms, and farmers market across New Jersey that are active in the Good Food Bucks program can be found on the updated Where to Find Good Food Bucks listing and interactive locator map.
