Does Hmart Accept EBT?

You can pay with an EBT card at most Hmart store locations. We confirmed this information with Hmart’s corporate customer service department and by contacting Hmart stores in California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Texas, and Virginia. All of the stores we contacted accept EBT.

Keep in mind, EBT regulations and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)-approved retailers can vary by state.
