How to use your EBT card at the Markets
Bring your EBT card to the designated EBT booth. Decide how much you would like to spend. We will swipe your card for that amount and we will give you tokens to be used at the market. While shopping, look for the growers who display the "EBT Accepted Here" signs in their booth.
