One of the things that I think is really wonderful about the East Nashville Farmers Market is that not having cash on hand is never a problem! The lovely folks of Delvin Farms have organized an option for those who wish to use a credit card, a debit card, or even an EBT card – even for vendors who don’t take cards themselves.
Here’s how it works!
EBT – SNAP Tokens (snapfreshnashville.org) can be purchased in $1 increments. These are good for the following:
- Any food item to be prepared/eaten at home
- Food-producing seeds and seedlings
They cannot be used for Hot foods/food to be eaten on site or non-food items, and NO CHANGE will be given.
Debit/Credit – Tokens can be purchased in $5 increments. These are good for the following:
- All products
- Change given (cash change only)
All tokens are available for purchase at the information tent in the center of the market (near the music tent). Please note that the charge will list as Delvin Farms on your billing statement.
The Grand Opening of the East Nashville Farmers Market is Wednesday, May 8th at 3:30pm. The market will run every Wednesday from May-Oct. There will be a petting zoo, chef demonstration, children’s activities and free yoga at 5:00pm.
This year we have 30 vendors! Every vendor at the market is the person who grows the food, raises the animal, bakes the bread, makes the cheese, or creates the artisan craft. Talk to your farmers and get to know them. We invite you to ask questions and learn more about the local producers at our market. We are proud to be a producers-only market, and proud to once again offer EBT/SNAP benefits allowing everyone access to healthy food.
This marks the 7th year of the East Nashville Farmers market. We have grown from a few vendors selling outside the Turnip Truck, to a large farmers market offering a one-stop shopping venue. You can purchase your bread, meat, milk, cheese, produce and more and be assured that your purchases are supporting small family farms while giving back to your local economy and community.
If you have any questions about the market, the farmers, or how EBT works please visit us at the market information booth in the center of the market. We will see you Wednesday!
