Presque Isle Farmer’s Market adds payment options

PRESQUE ISLE, MaineThe Presque Isle Farmers’ Market can now accept SNAP, EBT and credit cards, and will hold a “soft” opening for the SNAP/EBT/credit card machine tomorrow, Saturday, July 14. 

The market will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  

In addition, $400 worth of Maine Harvest Bucks will be handed out when eligible SNAP purchases are made.  Every SNAP dollar spent will be matched dollar for dollar with Maine Harvest Bucks that are good for future fruit and vegetable purchases.  

Lindsay Pelletier, the market’s new information booth consultant, will assist customers with transactions and questions.

Maine Harvest Bucks can be redeemed for locally produced fruits and vegetables, either fresh or processed with no salt, sugar or fat added.
