About the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program

The Seniors Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) helps provide low-income seniors with access to locally grown fruits, vegetables, honey, and herbs.

Eligible participants receive a $50 voucher to use at participating farmers' markets and roadside stands. The voucher can be redeemed for Ohio-grown fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs, and honey. 

We offer the program to eligible applicants who are 60 or older and residents of Crawford, Huron, Knox, Richland, and Seneca counties.

Please view the map of Ohio Farmers Markets to find Farmers' Markets or Roadside Stands in your area: Farmers Markets
