Farmer's Market checks buy fresh produce

Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program check booklets are available at local senior centers and other agencies. Each booklet includes $35 worth of checks that can be used to buy fresh Alaska-grown fruits, vegetables, fresh-cut herbs and honey at participating farmers’ markets, authorized farms, and roadside stands within Alaska. Applicants must be at least 60 years old and meet low-income eligibility guidelines. Links to program information and a downloadable application are at Or call your local senior center or meal program for details. There’s also a proxy application form that allows someone to apply on behalf of someone else. Checks may be used from June 1 through Oct. 31.

Some locations have reportedly been slow to receive the booklets. Keep checking.
