Learn How to Accept SNAP EBT Payments
Farmers and farmers' markets: join the Minnesota Farmers' Market Association (MFMA) on Thursday, July 15, 6:30-8:30pm CT to learn how you can enroll to accept SNAP EBT payments from SNAP participants. As of 2020, MN DHS is supplying a free card reader machine and free transaction services to all DMFs (direct marketing farmers) and FMs (farmers' markets). This event will:
- Walk through the application process for both FMs and DMFs
- Share strategies on how to optimize this service for CSAs, custom exempt meats, etc.
- Discuss all the "Bucks" programs available (matching dollar incentives) for farmers' markets, and how they have potential to expand to DMFs
- Provide time for Q&A
- Provide consultation with participants following the training as needed
