Turn in those old tokens!

With the new season and new vendors, we are happy to share the good news that most vendors now accept credit/debit cards directly at their tables, making it easier for you to shop! However, this means that our iconic Market Tokens have become obsolete. If you still have tokens left from previous years, we will still honor them at the Manager’s Table.
