How does it work?

STEP ONE – Bring your SNAP EBT Horizon card to a participating farmers market info booth or farm stand before you shop.

STEP TWO – Decide how much money you would like to spend. The attendant at the booth will swipe your card for the requested amount, and will give you wooden tokens worth one dollar each that you can use to purchase food from vendors at the market. You can use the tokens right away or save them for another day.
