Providing eligible seniors with fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets.
The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program increases our community’s intake of fruits and vegetables; expands the use of local farmers markets, farm stores, and community supported agriculture programs; and increases sales of Washington grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. A list of participating farmers markets and farm stores will be posted when available and will be included with the vouchers.
Eligible low-income seniors receive $40 worth of vouchers to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at authorized farmers markets or farm stands.
