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!
Andersonville Farmers Market is proud to continue our partnership with LINK Up Illinois!!
We continued our partnership with the LINK Up Illinois program in 2018. The 2018 matching program used universal currency that was valid at all participating Chicago farmers markets. Please note that starting in 2018 matching funds currency can only be used for fresh fruits and vegetables. More information about this program is coming soon! Thank you to all of our participants for their understanding and patience.
