Iowa Farmers Market

More low-income Iowans have increased access to locally grown farm fresh food at selected Farmers Markets due to the efforts of the Iowa Department of Human Services’ Wireless EBT Project.

This Project provides wireless point-of-sale machines to qualified vendors across the state. This enables vendors to accept the EBT food assistance card, MasterCard or Visa, or Discover.

The result of this project is that everyone benefits! Iowans are now be able to use their EBT, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover to purchase food at the markets, providing easy access to the freshest food Iowa has to offer. And the project helps vendors as well by providing access to a client base that was previously unable to purchase their goods with the cards.
