Senior Farmers Market

If you are a senior (aged 60 years or older) who lives in New York State, and are low-income, you may be eligible to receive Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) checks.
Seniors who are eligible for this program receive a booklet with SFMNP checks that can only be used to purchase local, fresh, unprocessed vegetables and fruits at participating farmers’ markets and farm stands. Seniors must contact their local county Office for the Aging for more information about where to receive SFMNP checks. The program starts July 1 and checks are distributed on a first come, first served basis.
If you reside outside of New York City, contact your County Office for the Aging for more information by calling (800) 342-9871.
If you reside in the New York City Metro Area, contact the Department for the Aging or your local senior center by calling General Assistance at 311. You can also contact the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP).
