Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)

For Seniors – About the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program

  • The Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides low-income eligible seniors “vouchers” to use at area farmers’ markets and participating roadside stands to help stretch their food dollars.
  • You must be 60 years of age or older, (or a Native American 55 or older).
  • Each household will receive $25 in vouchers or coupons to use at farmers’ markets to purchase fruits and vegetables only.
  • Vouchers will be distributed on a “first-come, first-served” basis at several locations around the county, and there will be vouchers reserved for each site. If more people show up than we have allocated vouchers, we will create a waiting list in case there are more vouchers available later.
  • Vouchers can be picked up by proxy; be sure to have the eligible person’s complete address, phone number and date of birth.
  • Vouchers are available in early spring and information is sent to the county newspapers about voucher pickup sites and times.
