Anyone with an EBT card for QUEST who attends the Sturgeon Bay farmers market can once again swipe the card at the market to obtain fruit, vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, breads, grains, pasta, food-producing plants and seeds, dairy products, eggs, fish, poultry, meat, sauces, soups, syrups and honey.
To use the EBT card at the market, locate the United Way EBT table on the library side of the parking lot, swipe the card for up to $50 per week, and receive tokens to use as payment at the vendor booths. Each token is equal to $1.
