Contracts, Terminals, and Apps! SNAP-EBT Options for Your Market in 2014
USDA has set-aside $4 million to be used to purchase wireless terminals and support services for one year for direct-marketing farmers and farmers markets that are not SNAP authorized. These funds can now be acccessed by elibible parties through the new website: MarketLink.org.
Amy Crone of NAFMNP and the Maryland Farmers Market Association presents MarketLink, which provides an iPhone-based EBT system with printer, license for the Mobile Market+ app, and two years of data plan and some service fees included.
Rebecca Landis, market director at Corvallis-Albany Farmers’ Markets, and past president of the Oregon Farmers’ Markets Association, helps to guide participants through the jungle of EBT technology options and service providers. The decision was never easy, but now farmers markets and farmers have more choices than ever. One size does not fit all, and contract details really do matter.
