Mark Bittman's take on SNAP (food stamps) and Soda

The buzz from this article has mostly been about Bittman's call for food stamps to stop subsidizing soda. While I agree with him on this point, I wish he'd spent more time on the issue he mentions at the end of this article where he touches on how New York State doubles the value of SNAP "dollars" for food bought at farmers markets and he pushes for that doubling (or incentivizing) for "real" foods in grocery stores such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes.
