The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides low-income seniors with vouchers to purchase produce from participating farmers markets and roadside stands. It is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the State of Washington, but the program is coordinated locally by Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources, the local Area Agency on Aging for Pierce County.

- You must be 60 years old or older (or 55+ if you are Native American /Alaska Native

Registration will continue through June 19th, or until all vouchers are claimed. One set of vouchers ($40) is allowed per household, not per person.
