Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program

2 min read

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program provides you with a coupon booklet that can be used to buy fresh vegetables, fruits, honey, and herbs. You can use the coupon booklet at local farmers’ markets and outdoor stands.

There are certain foods that you cannot use the coupon booklet to buy, such as dried fruits or vegetables, nuts, potted or dried herbs, and other items.

The program has a small number of coupon booklets to offer each year. So, the coupon booklets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to those who meet the program rules.

Please note: Not all farmers’ markets will accept the coupon booklets. You should check with your local farmers market to see if they participate in the program. You can also go to the USDA Farmers’ Market website, click on the “Payment Accepted” tab, check the box next to “Senior Farmers Markets Nutrition Program (SFMNP),” and then click on your state.


How do I get help?

To take part in this program, contact your local Area Agency on Aging or your State Agency to see if there is a farmers market program in your area and to find out how to get a coupon booklet.

Please note: This program may not be offered in every area of your state and may only be available at certain times of the year.
