|To make shopping at the Winter Market easier, customers visiting the Winter Market can use their credit, debit or EBT card to purchase tokens in the amounts of $5 and $1 that can be used to purchase items at the farmers’ stands. Farmers and artisans can give cash change for customers using the $5 tokens. No change is given for the $1 tokens. Tokens can be purchased by customers at the red cart inside Main Street Market.
In addition, the Winter Market also accepts SNAP EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) program payments. SNAP payments are only applicable for food that is not hot and ready to eat.
“We are excited to now offer SNAP EBT and provide this avenue for people of all income levels to eat local, fresh and healthy products courtesy of our Rutherford County farmers,” said Hislop.
