Summer farmers markets increase consumer base by exchanging credit, debit, EBT card funds for tokens

After using the winter farmers market at Cole Gardens as its testing ground, the Merrimack County Conservation District set up the system to accept funds from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the food stamp program. EBT cards transfer SNAP participantsí funds from a federal account to the retailer, and their money is exchanged at a tent in the market for tokens accepted at most vendorsí stands.
