SNAP & Debit
Did you know that you can use your EBT (SNAP) or debit card to make purchases at the City Market? It’s easy!
Stop by the Market Central booth, and swipe your card
Receive the dollar amount that you designate in wooden market tokens to spend at the market
For DEBIT card users:
Swipe your card for the desired amount in $5 increments (we’ll add a one dollar convenience fee to cover the bank fees and administrative costs)
Receive $5 tokens to spend like cash throughout the market
Change can be given for these tokens
Tokens are good throughout the season
For SNAP/E.B.T. card users:
SNAP beneficiaries (formerly Food Stamps) can swipe their card at the booth, and get $1 tokens to spend on qualifying food purchases at the market
When you get SNAP tokens, you’ll also receive a matching dollar amount in double voucher coupons to spend along with the tokens, up to $10 (the coupons are possible through grant from Bama Works, Dave Mathews Fund.)
Vendors are not allowed to give change for SNAP tokens.
Want to give a market gift certificate? We’ve got them at our table – just stop by for details!
