Paying for your vine-ripened, organic fruits and veggies just got easier.
Farmers markets across the country are looking to increase sales through credit card processing via their iPhones, BlackBerrys and Droids.
"Accepting credit cards increased sales by about 30 percent," says Scott Peterson, a Syracuse, N.Y., farmers' market vendor. "Before we accepted them, many costumers passed us by because they don't carry cash."
Peterson says he can process debit and credit card payments right on his cell phone in a matter of a minute or two, without a phone line or credit card terminal. "It's a necessary convenience and a service to our customers," he says.
