Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program

Fresh And Organic Vegetables At Farmers Market

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) supports good nutrition by providing low-income elders living in select counties in Florida with coupons that can be redeemed for locally grown, fresh, fruits and vegetables from participating farmers at local farmers’ markets. The program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Click here to easily view mapped locations of all of our participating farmers markets and roadside stands.

Upon application through the local lead agency, in participating counties, eligible elders receive $40 worth of coupons (10 coupons worth $4 each) that can be exchanged for fresh, locally grown produce. Coupons are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning in early April, and continuing while funds are available.

In October, the Fall Bundle program begins. Eligible elders in participating counties receive $40 worth of pre-bundled fresh, locally grown produce. The local lead agency collects applications from seniors and coordinates a day with the farmer to deliver the bundles to the seniors. The program runs through November, and bundles are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Elders age 60 and older with an income not exceeding 185 percent of the current federal poverty guidelines are eligible. Federal poverty guidelines are updated each year.
