The Midtown Farmers Market issues Red EBT tokens and market bucks to people with EBT cards. These tokens can only be used on fresh produce or qualifying prepared food. Ready to eat food cannot accept red EBT tokens. If you are a vendor who can accept EBT tokens and market bucks, additional information will be sent to you to explain the function of these tokens and the reimbursement schedule. Press Yes to acknowledge. *
The Midtown Farmers Market does not issue green "cash" tokens and the nearest ATM is located at the bank next to the market site. Trends in recent years show that fewer and fewer people carry cash. We strongly encourage you to take credit cards and/or use an e-payment app like Venmo, CashApp, or Paypal. If you require assistance setting up these apps or figuring out how to take cards, market managers can offer you individual assistance on a case by case basis. Press Yes to acknowledge. *
Masks are strongly encouraged for everyone. For your safety and others we will always have masks and sanitizing stations available. We have other COVID-19 precautions in place that we explain at a later time. All these precautions must be followed by you and any staff, friends, or family members that vend with you at your booth. Press Yes to acknowledge. *

If you no call-no show (You do not tell market staff at any time you will not be at a market you signed up for) you will be placed on review by market managers in addition to paying that days stall fee with an additional charge of $10.
