Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program 

Farmers Market The locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables provided by this program offer many important health benefits to seniors while
also offering an economic stimulus. Farmers Market coupon booklets, redeemable for New York State grown fruits and vegetables, are distributed at community locations to eligible seniors. These coupons are offered once a year, beginning in July and the Program lasts until they have all been distributed.

The Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program Coupons have been distributed. All NYS residents age 60+ are encouraged to pick up a 2023 $25 Coupon Booklet at the CNY Regional Market starting Saturday, July 8. Coupons are distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis to eligible persons with proof of ID. Each age 60+ adult in the household is eligible to receive a coupon booklet.
