Farmers Market

A reminder from our friends at Everett Farmers Market that eligible seniors can receive vouchers to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the market held on Sundays in downtown Everett, Washington. Here are the details.

The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program increases our community’s intake of fruits and vegetables; expands the use of local farmers markets, farm stores, and community supported agriculture programs; and increases sales of Washington grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. A list of participating farmers markets and farm stores will be posted when available and will be included with the vouchers.

Eligible low-income seniors receive $40 worth of vouchers to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at authorized farmers markets or farm stands.
