The National Association of Farmers Market Nutrition Programs (NAFMNP) is accepting applications from markets and direct-marketing farmers for receiving free electronic benefit transfer (EBT) processing solutions from its MarketLink program, through the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Services Cooperative Agreement. NAFMNP’s MarketLink program assists farmers and markets with accepting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and electronic payments. Under the USDA FNS grant, eligible applicants will receive a card reader, as well as a one-year license for the Novo Dia Group (NDG) Mobile Market+ app. This is a point-of-sale system that accepts EBT along with all other forms of payments, including credit and debit cards.
