Payment Options & Federal Assistance Programs
Payments Options at the Market
It is possible to use many forms of payment at the OHSU Farmers Market. Each vendor accepts cash, checks, tokens and produce vendors accept WIC/Senior Vouchers. Tokens can be purchased at the Info Booth of the market with either a debit card or Oregon Trail card (SNAP) or at the It's All Good store on the 9th floor of the main hospital with debit, credit or VA vouchers.
Free Money for SNAP/WIC/FDNP Users
We have a grant this year from New Seasons to match $1 for $1 up to $5 per SNAP card or other federal benefit per day for FREE! This type of program is available at farmers markets all over the country, but is unique here in that this is our first year matching all federal benefits applicable at farmers markets. Its a very exciting way to help support low income families who want to get fresh, local produce. If you have an Oregon Trail card (or other state's Food Stamps program card), or WIC fruit and veggie voucher, or WIC Farm Direct Nutrition Voucher or Senior Farm Direct Nutrition Voucher, you are eligible. Visit the market's Info Booth to get your tokens and matching dollars! If you are part of a clinic that serves low-income clients, please feel free to print and hang our Double Your Dollars poster to let your clients know to ask about these special benefits.
Federal Assistance at the OHSU Farmers Market
All vendors who sell eligible products for Women Infants and Children (WIC) Fruit and Veggie Program or the WIC & Senior Farm Direct Nutrition Program are mandated to participate in the program. All of these vouchers can be redeemed at the OHSU Farmers Market.
