Did you know that you can use your credit, debit or SNAP/EBT card at the market? Simply drop by the information booth (at the corner of 44th Ave and Hancock St.) to use your credit, debit or EBT card.
Customers using their credit or debit card will receive wooden tokens in $5 denominations. These orange $5 tokens never expire and are accepted by all vendors at the Hollywood Farmers Market and Lloyd Farmers Market. There are no limitations on purchases made with the orange $5 tokens and vendors will give you change in cash if you do not spend the full amount of the token. We apply a $2 surcharge which supports the cost of the token program.
Customers using their SNAP/EBT card (known as Oregon Trail in Oregon and Basic Food in Washington) will receive tokens in $1 denominations. Just like any other SNAP/EBT dollars, these green $1 tokens may be used to purchase vegetables, fruit, poultry, seafood, meat, breads, dairy products and plants or seeds for growing food. The green $1 tokens may NOT be used to purchase hot ready-to-eat foods, alcohol, or non-food items. Change cannot be made, so we suggest that SNAP customers shop the market with some loose change to use with their SNAP tokens.
Every market day, SNAP customers can use their card at the market to withdraw tokens to spend on fresh local food. We will match, dollar-to-dollar up to $10, those funds to help increase the purchasing power of SNAP recipients and encourage healthy eating.
WIC and Senior Checks (FDNP)
Customers participating in the Farm Direct Nutrition Program may use their WIC or Senior Farm Direction Nutrition Program (FDNP) checks at the Hollywood Farmers Market between June 1st and November 30th. All vendors at Hollywood Farmers Market that sell fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs will accept these checks. You can also look for the “Oregon Farm Direct Nutrition Checks Welcome Here!” sign in each eligible vendor’s booth. Check out the Farm Direct Nutrition Program website for more information.
