How do I use SNAP at the Farmers’ Market?

To use your SNAP benefits at the Farmers’ Market, you will need your SNAP EBT card:

  • Find the Point-of-Sale machine.
  • The Point-of-Sale (POS) machine is located at a central market location and is operated by a market manager or volunteer.
  • Visit the POS machine with your SNAP card, and decide how much you want to spend.
  • You will be given tokens or scrip (paper tickets) for the amount you choose to spend.
  • Use the tokens/scrip just like cash at the farmers’ market!
  • You CANNOT receive change for SNAP tokens/scrip.
  • Any unused tokens/scrip may be refunded back onto your SNAP card, or you may save the tokens/scrip to be used at your next visit!
