Farmer's Market checks for fresh produce

Have you picked up your Farmer's Market checks? The Senior Farmer's Market Nutrition Program check booklets are available at local senior centers and other agencies for use July 1 through Oct. 31. Each booklet includes $40 worth of checks for buying 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, booklet distribution locations 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.
