Posted by wlpo on April 12, 2014

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) – Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon is encouraging farmers markets to accept food-stamp cards with wireless technology provided by the state.

She will visit vendors and customers with her message that farmers markets should accept LINK cards in Carbondale Saturday. The Carbondale market is the first in Illinois to receive a free wireless point-of-sale terminal to handle LINK cards.

Simon encourages all farmers markets to “open their stands to all residents.”
