Link/Credit/Debit cards at the Market
The Andersonville Farmers Market accepts Link, credit, and debit cards! The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce booth can now process your credit/debit card in exchange for tokens that you can use throughout the market! Our LINK program uses tokens. Here’s how it works:
Credit/Debit tokens are GREEN and can be used the same as cash at the market. Credit/debit tokens are worth $5 (there is a convenience fee of 25 cents per token to cover our processing costs) and change can be given by vendors for these tokens.
LINK tokens are BLUE and can be used to purchase Link approved items at participating booths. LINK tokens are worth $1 (no processing fee) and vendors cannot give change for these tokens.
BOTH tokens can be used at any time during the season. You don’t have to spend them all at once!
