Quest Cards Now Accepted at Green Bay's Farmers Markets

By Katie Kozak. CREATED Aug 9, 2014

GREEN BAY -- Cash isn't the only currency at today's farmers market in Green Bay.

As part of a program called Double Your Bucks, families who use the Wisconsin EBT Quest Card are able to use their benefits are the market which, typically, cash only. Organizers say this allows low income families to buy in a way they otherwise might not be able to.

 "It allows them to come shop local. You get the fresh produce that they want and take advantage of everything else they have with being able to have that card," says Brehanna Skaletski with Downtown Green Bay, Inc.

Quest Card customers can now use these benefits at all three of Green Bay's farmers markets, on Wednesday and Saturday on Broadway and Thursday at the Oneida Farmers Market.
