Double your purchasing power with DOUBLE VALUE TOKENS that match your electronic benefits dollar for dollar   When you shop at the Glenview Farmers Market, you benefit from food that’s fresher and more flavorful. It’s the best food you can bring home to your family! You will meet the friendly farmers who grow the food you buy. They would love to answer your questions about how to prepare anything at their booths.

How to Use Your LINK Card at the Farmers Market

  1. Head to the Information Table which will have a “We accept LINK cards here” banner.
  2. Use your LINK Card (SNAP) to purchase as many RED $1 wooden tokens as you’d like, and you will be given a matching number of GREEN DOUBLE VALUE $1 tokens! ($25 limit per market day) Both RED and GREEN tokens will act as “cash” at the farmers’ market.
  3. Use both colors of tokens at any market booth that displays a Link Card sign on it.
