diagonal image

The purpose of the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program is to promote the routine consumption of fruits and vegetables as a part of the daily diet. Checks for seniors are distributed at local senior facilities through the cooperation of the Illinois Department on Aging, Area Agencies on Aging and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago. These checks can be redeemed for fresh fruits and vegetables at local farmers' markets in (31) counties. Nutrition education materials, including recipes, are also distributed. The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program season begins July 1st and ends October 31st.

To see if you live in a participating county browse the Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program list and contact your local AAA for more information.
