Payment Options


Payment Options


Vendors at the South Memphis Farmers Market accept several forms of payment, including cash, credit/debit cards, and EBT (formerly known as the Food Stamps program).

Customers who wish to use cash at the Market may shop directly with our vendors. For all other forms of payment, we have established a token system that allows customers to purchase wooden tokens at the Information Table, which may then be spent with vendors.

CREDIT & DEBIT CARDS

Tokens are sold in $5.00 increments for credit and debit card purchases. Vendors are able to make change for these tokens if customers do not spend the entire amount.

EBT

EBT is now known as SNAP (Supplimental Nutrition Access Program). These tokens are available in $1.00 increments, and vendors may not give change for them.

FRESH SAVINGS 

Through the AARP Fresh Savings Program, SNAP customers who use their EBT card to make a purchase at our market will receive a matching amount of up to $20 in Fresh Savings tokens which they can then use to purchase additional fresh fruits and vegetables.

Our Mission & History


Our Mission & History


Our Mission

The South Memphis Farmers Market is dedicated to providing access to healthy and affordable foods in the South Memphis community. We also strive to create an atmosphere that contributes to the success of local growers and producers.

Our History

The SMFM is the first project of South Memphis Revitalization Action Plan (SoMeRAP).  SoMeRAP is a resident-led effort to transform South Memphis into one of the region's premier urban neighborhoods of choice by mobilizing local residents, institutions, and their allies to implement a comprehensive economic and community development strategy.  One of the key areas of focus in the plan is healthy living, including access to healthy foods in the South Memphis community; throughout the planning process residents consistently identified access to healthy foods as one of their highest priorities.

In March of 2010, as the plan was entering the final stages of adoption by the Memphis City Council, the community formed the SMFM planning committee and got to work on opening the market.  Our grand opening ceremony was held on July 15, 2010, opening the market with nine vendors.
