All our vendors take cash, and many take debit & credit cards. But, if you forget cash or want to use SNAP benefits, you can do that too at the Winter Farmers Market. Here’s how:
Scan your SNAP/EBT card at the welcome desk, and we’ll give you red tokens worth $1 each. These can be spent on any grocery item or food bearing plant in the market. No swipe fee, and tokens do not expire.
Thanks to a grant from the AARP Foundation, when you scan your SNAP/EBT card, we can double it for fresh fruits and vegetables, up to $20 per transaction. We will give you matching Fresh Savings tokens, worth $1 each. They are red and green, and can be spent on any fresh fruit or vegetable in the market. They can also be used at Market Square Farmers Market and New Harvest Park Farmers Market. They do not expire as long as the Fresh Savings grant is operational, through 2020.
All our vendors take cash, but if you forget to bring enough, come to the welcome desk, and scan your debit or credit card for $5 tokens. These are green, and may be spent on any item in the market. There is a $20 minimum purchase, with a $2 scan fee. These tokens never expire.
