Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program

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.

 

Eligible low-income seniors receive $40 worth of checks to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at authorized farmers markets or farm stands.
