Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program
Promoting the routine consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers’ markets as part of the daily diet of low-income seniors.

The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) allows qualified participants to buy nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables using SFMNP vouchers from participating farmers’ market associations to improve their diets. SFMNP:

  • is not a statewide program;
  • provides resources to low-income seniors in the form of fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and culinary herbs from farmers' markets; and
  • increases the domestic consumption of agricultural commodities by helping develop or expand domestic farmers' markets.
