APPLY NOW FOR THE 2019 FARMER’S MARKET VOUCHERS
Seniors age 60 or older are encouraged to apply for a benefit administered by the Alabama Department of Agriculture & Industries, Farmers Market Authority Section to provide coupons to low income seniors. Each senior will receive five $6 vouchers (total of $30) that can be used to purchase eligible foods (fruits, vegetables, honey, and fresh-cut herbs) from farmers that grow them and are selling them directly to you at local farmers markets and roadside stands. The St. Clair County Farmers Market in Pell City is an approved market where seniors can spend their vouchers. Eligibility is based on income.
If you do not have access to the internet, the form is also available on all three Extension Kiosks located at the Moody and Springville Public Libraries or in the St. Clair County Courthouse (lower level) in Pell City. If you need assistance or have questions, please contact us at the St. Clair County Extension office at (205) 338-9416.
