We Take Plastic

Forget to go by the ATM? Enough cash for only two rutabagas? No worries. OXCM takes plastic. We employ a token system, where for cash, check, or credit card, we can sell you $1, $5, or $10 tokens to be used with any vendor throughout the market.  These cute tokens also make great gifts (think farmers market gift certificate) for the foodie in your life — give the gift of produce!
2.83% market support fee applied at each swipe.

EBT Cards & WIC Vouchers

OXCM now accepts EBT via our wireless card reader! Please invite anyone you know who uses EBT to come shop with us. Also, we are now able to accept Mississippi WIC FMNP vouchers. We are excited to offer these resources for more citizens to do business with our local farms! We are in the process of acquiring a voucher programs for eligible senior citizens as well. We have more plans to grow our EBT program, raise funds to provide Double Dollars to EBT and voucher customers, and more – if you’d like to help, let us know.

 

 

Help Grow the Market

We need volunteers. Whether you want to help out some local farmers, put your efforts into community outreach, bring more people to the tent, serve up lemonade or raise funds to grow the market, we’ve got a volunteer spot for you! Put the unity in community – come help set up, stack, carry, lift, sort, sell, pack, and have fun doing it. You’ll meet the folks who raise all this delicious food, plus others who live & work in Oxford. We are also recruiting planning committee members. Sign up: http://vols.pt/BLaJoi.
