The Council for Older Adults has begun distributing vouchers as part of the Senior Farmers’ Market Voucher Program. Now in its ninth year, the program provides Delaware County residents age 60 and over with vouchers for fresh foods from farmers’ markets in Delaware, Sunbury and Powell. he vouchers can be used to purchase fresh fruits and veggies, herbs, baked goods, honey, and even food-bearing plants.
Participants who sign up before September 1 will receive twenty-five (25) vouchers with a total value of $50. Those who sign up after September 1 will receive fifteen (15) vouchers with a total value of $30. All vouchers are valid through October 31, but participants will need to check with their farmers’ market to determine how late in the season each one will be open as market dates differ.
