Kingston Farmers Market offers different ways to pay for your purchase, and we are still expanding those options to best meet the needs of our customers and vendors. Never hesitate to ask a vendor what forms of payment they accept, or stop in at the Market Management tent for more information!
Many of our vendors accept credit and debit cards directly at their booths. Some do not, which is in part due to high processing fees for card transactions. This cuts into their revenue and can potentially drive prices up. We never want you to walk away from a purchase because you did not bring enough cash.
We encourage our customers to purchase the black Kingston Farmers Market tokens, which can be used just like cash at any vendor at the market, on any item that is available for sale. Vendors are able to give you change as though you were paying in cash. There are no exclusions for use of this type of tokens. A small token handling fee is charged for black KFM tokens.
