Using Your Ohio Direction Card

(SNAP/EBT) at the Piqua Community Farmers Market

 

Step 1
Take a look around the market to see what you would like to purchase.  The same rules apply at the market that apply elsewhere - you may use your card to purchase fruits, vegetables, baked goods, jams, jellies, seasonings, and plants that grow food. 

 

Step 2
Bring your Ohio Direction Card to the information booth (located under the trees next to the gazebo).   You will be asked to how much money you would like to use and you will swipe your card and enter your PIN  number.  (Your purchase will need to be in whole dollars.)

When the transaction is authorized you will be given paper ‘tokens’ to purchase the items you would like to buy. 

 

Step 3

Take the tokens to the Market Vendor and purchase the items you would like.

The paper tokens can be used like regular money and they will not expire.  Cash change will not be given by the vendors.

If you have any questions please stop by the Piqua Farmers Market information booth. 

Vendors that have items that are eligible to be purchased with EBT/SNAP benefits will have a sign in their booth. 

The Piqua Community Farmers Market accepts EBT/SNAP benefits, Produce Perks, WIC, and SFMFP coupons.  A list of the eligible foods that can be purchased with those benefits can be found HERE and viewed below.
