A new farmer’s market on Liberty Street, operated by the Urban Food Policy Council, will soon begin accepting SNAP EBT cards for payment.

The Liberty Street Urban Farmers Market is open from 4  to 6 p.m. every second and fourth Friday. Starting Aug. 14, customers will be able to use their SNAP EBT cards to make purchases in addition to other payment methods accepted by vendors. The process will be similar to the SNAP EBT transactions at the Fairgrounds Farmers Market, where customers can have their SNAP EBT card swiped through a reader and receive an equivalent amount in tokens that vendors accept for purchases.

As its name implies, all the vendors at the Liberty Street Urban Farmers Market are urban farmers, said Tiffany Turner, the city’s food resilience project manager who is overseeing SNAP EBT at the market. “Their gardens are all within a five-mile radius of Liberty Street,” she said.

Measures have been put in place for shoppers and vendors to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. The market is scheduled to operate through the end of October.
