Farmers Market EBT Advisory Group

A monthly conference call for state EBT and WIC directors, USDA representatives, farmer market practitioners, and professionals working to expand access of SNAP and WIC at farmers markets. The group also monitors the advance of Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) technology and works with merchant providers to explore opportunities to reduce the cost of the technology for the benefit of state & federal government agencies and more importantly for farmers markets and farmers. A list of current participants can be seen here.
