No cash? No problem! The Woodstock Farmers Market has a token program that includes debit/credit and SNAP. Stop by the Info Booth to use your SNAP/EBT, debit or credit card in exchange for tokens.
Debit/Credit: Customers using their debit or credit card will receive wooden tokens in $5 denominations. The tokens are treated as cash, and there are no restrictions on purchases. Vendors will give you change in cash if you do not spend the full amount of the token. Debit and credit card users will be charged a one time fee for the service at the information booth.
SNAP/EBT: Customers using their SNAP/EBT card will receive wooden tokens in $1 denominations. Standard SNAP/EBT restrictions apply; therefore, these $1 tokens may only be used to purchase vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, dairy products, breads, seeds and plants. The $1 tokens may not be used to purchase non-food items, merchandise, ready-to-eat foods and flowers. Vendors can not make change for the $1 tokens.
Double Up Food Bucks: The Woodstock Farmers Market is dedicated to making fresh, healthy, locally grown produce available to everyone in our community. We’re also dedicated to supporting our local farmers. That’s why we’re providing all SNAP participants with a dollar-for-dollar match (up to an additional $10 per week) to spend with our vendors.
For every $1 of SNAP funds redeemed, SNAP participants will also receive a $1 Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) token (up to $10) every week of the market. To receive your SNAP and DUFB tokens, simply swipe your EBT card at the SNAP/DEBIT booth and use the tokens to shop with our vendors.

WIC and Senior Farm Direct Nutrition Program (FDNP): Customers participating in the Farm Direct Nutrition Program may use their WIC or Senior checks with eligible farmers at the Market. They are specifically for locally-produced fresh, unprocessed fruit and vegetables. Check out the Oregon State Farm Direct Nutrition Program website for more information.
