Link Cards Accepted at Glenview Farmers' Market Including Double Value Incentive
Link cards will again be accepted at the Glenview Farmers’ Market this season. People who participate in the SNAP (Link) program can use their Link cards to purchase food items including: fresh produce, jellies, jams, breads and dairy products at the Glenview Farmers’ Market. In addition, the Market will be offering double value tokens, providing participants with an opportunity to stretch their benefits and purchase double the amount of fresh produce.
To purchase items with Link, participants will visit the Information Table and use their Link card to purchase red $1 wooden tokens. For each red token purchased, participants will receive a matching number of green double value $1 tokens. The red and green tokens are used the same as cash at any market booths that display Link signs.
Any unused red tokens can be refunded back on the participants Link card, (provided a matching number of double value tokens are returned at the same time) or unused tokens can be used at future Glenview Farmers’ Markets. Green tokens cannot be exchanged for benefits or cash. All tokens must be used before the last day of the market, October 13th.
This Link program is made possible because of the generous support of Glenview State Bank, Glenview Women of Today, Friends of Wagner Farm, Kiwanis Club of Glenview-Northbrook and the Noon Rotary Club of Glenview, with donated time by the Northfield Township Food Pantry to spread the word to Link card users.
The Glenview Farmers’ Market is held every Saturday, June 23rd – October 13th from 8:00 am –12:00 pm at Wagner Farm, 1510 Wagner Road, Glenview.
