HOW THE TOKEN SYSTEM WORKS:
The Harvest Market will sell wooden tokens to customers using a point of sale (POS) machine located at the Harvest Market Information tent. Three different types of tokens will be sold and have different redemption requirements.
NO CHANGE can be provided for LINK tokens.
