Credit, debit and EBT/SNAP (Electronic Benefit Transfer/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) cards are accepted at the Iowa City Farmers Market. Shoppers intending to pay with a card should stop by the centralized information table and swipe their cards for tokens of equal value. All eligible vendors will accept the EBT/SNAP tokens, and all vendors will accept the credit/debit card tokens. Signs indicating which tokens are accepted by each vendor are displayed at their booth. As an added benefit, those using EBT/SNAP cards to purchase tokens will have their dollars matched through Double Up Food Bucks, Iowa’s statewide healthy food incentive program.
