The Island Roots Market will be issuing Market Money (MM) and shoppers will be spending it at the Market. It is the same colour and size as CDN $5s, $10s and $20s. You will recognize it on site.
Vendors are asked to accept MM as though it were cash and can return it to the market manager or the volunteer in charge of MM to receive the equivalent in CDN money or use it to pay Market fees. BUT please use it as part of your market float, give it to shoppers as change and return it to the manager or volunteer only when you have at least $100 worth.
Note: There will be people who don't want MM and there will be times, especially at the beginning, when you will not have MM to use for change. We are simply asking that you accept it when offered and, if you have MM, you offer it to customers as change. They can decline if they wish.
