Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program

Seniors Farmers’ Market Coupons are available now

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is a federal program that helps income-eligible individuals age 60 and over with a coupon booklet valued up to $20 to use at participating farmers’ markets. This program not only helps out seniors, but supports our local farmers as well. To qualify for a coupon booklet, individuals must:

  • Be age 60 or older; AND
  • Have a monthly income that is at or below federal income guidelines for the household
    SFMNP Income Eligibility Guidelines
  • Be a resident of New York State
  • Have not received a coupon booklet from another location this year

Due to the COVID-19 social distancing policies still in place, we have had to change the way we can distribute coupons this year. As a result, we will be offering 3 Drive-Thru distribution locations. To maintain social distancing practices, we are requesting that you arrive with your REQUIRED Statement of Eligibility completed. Please click on the following links to download and print your REQUIRED form:
