The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides income-eligible senior citizens with special coupons worth $50 to buy produce from authorized, participating farmers who sell at farmers markets or roadside stands from the months of May through October.
The SFMNP is a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Department of Aging to allow income-eligible seniors the opportunity to enjoy locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey.
Program coupons may be exchanged for eligible foods from authorized farmers. Coupons are distributed on a first come, first served basis. Each person will receive a total of ten $5 coupons.
Over 45 local farmers participate in the Senior Farmers Market Program to sell seasonal items that are locally grown.
