All vendors accept cash for your purchases.

Please check with each vendor if they accept Debit & Credit cards.

Please check with each vendor or look for signage at their booth saying that they accept SNAP Cards.  You can go to the market managers booth to use your card after you decide on what you are purchasing and they will run your card and give you either a receipt or tokens to use for your purchase.

Please check with each produce vendor if they are accepting Double Up Food Bucks Tokens or not. They should have signage out to let you know they are accepting it.  When you have your SNAP card swiped you will get Double Up Food Bucks Tokens on the equal amount of your SNAP Purchase up to $20 for the day. These tokens can only be used for Fresh fruit, cut herbs, and herb plants, vegetables, mushrooms, and annual plants that produce food (example Tomatoes, pepper plants).  No Bake goods, Value Added Goods, or hot foods, meat, eggs, dairy, and seeds.  Tokens do not need to be used on the same day but can be saved for another market day. Tokens are worth $2 each and no change can be made for them.

WIC Project FRESH coupons can only be used to buy eligible, locally grown, fresh, unprepared fruits and vegetables from authorized farmers, farmers’ markets, and roadside stands. WIC clients are encouraged to use all their coupons during the season to help meet their special nutritional needs. They are especially encouraged to buy broccoli, carrots, potatoes, squash, peaches, apples and tomatoes. A variety of produce rich in vitamins A, C, and folic acid are emphasized.

Participants are given ten, $5 vouchers to use at Farmers Markets and Roadside stands that display a sign that reads, “Senior Project FRESH / Market FRESH Welcome Here.”  The participant may choose from any Michigan-grown, non-processed product, including honey, that is for sale. The participant uses the voucher like cash to pay for the products.  Cash must be used to finish your purchase if it is more than what your coupons are worth.

Coupons cannot be used for items that are not normally grown in Michigan, such as bananas, oranges and pineapples. They also cannot be used on potted plants, flowers, cheese, meat, or eggs, even though some of these are good sources of nutrition.

Participants also receive nutrition education when they get their coupons.  This may be done at a class, one-to-one, or sometimes at the market. Please check with your Local Community Senior Center for more information.

Participants are encouraged to use all their coupons during the season, which is May 1 through Oct. 31 each year.  If a participant has difficulty getting to a market, they can assign a proxy.

Yes, we do.  Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic we are set up with the vendors spaced for our customers who do not feel like walking the market. You can drive up to each vendor booth and they will take your order, fill it, and deliver it to you in your car.
