We gladly accept SNAP/EBT cards as well as Visa and MasterCard.
Credit card and SNAP/EBT purchases run on a token system. Go to the manager’s booth and present your card to the manager. The card is swiped on a machine and the transaction proceeds as it would for any other credit card purchase. Instead of receiving cash, the manager will give you wooden tokens for the amount requested. EBT tokens can be used for EBT eligible foods. Credit/Debit tokens can be used to purchase anything at the Market. Tokens do not expire and can be used anytime you are at the Market.
EBT tokens come in denominations of $1 and $5. Credit/Debit tokens come in denominations of $1, $5, $10 and $20. We charge a $.50 fee for using your credit card. There is no fee for using an EBT card.
Starting July 30th, 2016 we began a program called Fresh Bucks whereby anyone using an EBT card will receive a $2 coupon for every $5 purchased with their card. This is being made possible by a grant from the USDA so that people using the SNAP/EBT program will have more buying power at farmers markets therefore giving them more access to healthy food.
