Market FAQ

HOW DO TOKENS WORK?

Stop by the Market Information tent to use your debit/credit card if you don’t have cash. We ask you how much you would like and then run your card with our card reader for that amount. The transaction is a dollar for dollar exchange. Each credit/debit token has a value of $1. All of our vendors accept tokens.

We ask for a $1 donation with every transaction so we can cover our vendors processing fees so they don’t have to.

This program is made possible by Just Harvest.

DO YOU ACCEPT EBT CARDS?

Yes! Before you start shopping, stop at the Market Information tent to buy wooden tokens with your EBT card. With every $5 spent of EBT you will receive $2 Food Bucks that can go towards any fresh produce.

Pets are permitted at the Market. We ask that pet owners be responsible by obeying these guidelines:

-Bringing pets that are friendly, obedient, and good with all children and other animals, and understanding that some people are afraid of pets.

Clean up after their pets! Please do not let your dog pee within a vendors space.

Keeping dogs on a leash at all times.
