Farmers markets

use credit cards at the farmers marketPaying 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.

About Our Ratings ×

Our editors rate credit cards objectively based on the features the credit card offers consumers, the fees and interest rates, and how a credit card compares with other cards in its category. Ratings vary by category, and the same card may receive a certain number of stars in one category and a higher or lower number in another.

The ratings are the expert opinion of our editors, and not influenced by any remuneration this site may receive from card issuers.
