Each market has an EBT machine, like a debit or credit card processor, and an EBT/CalFresh recipient may use their benefits by simply swiping their card, indicate how much they want to take out, and receive tokens to spend at the market. This doubles the amount of tokens a customer can spend at the market. For example, if a customer spends $15 in EBT funds, they're given an extra $15 ($30 total) in market tokens to spend on fruits and vegetables.

Markets match up to $30.
