A Roosevelt Island tradition for many of us is a Saturday Farmers Market walk to purchase fresh fruit, vegetables and other good stuff as well as to chat with our friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, the Roosevelt Island Amish Farmers Market did not offer the convenience of accepting credit card transactions. As reported in this 2010 post:
...I'd like to see all of Roosevelt Island's merchants, including the Farmers Market vendors, using Square or something similar to it. Would be very convenient....That has now changed.
Last week, Israel Wengerd told me that the Amish Market is now accepting credit card and EBT transactions.
Grow NYC has more on the acceptance of EBT payments at Farmers Markets and here's how to become a vendor at the Roosevelt Island Farmers Market.
