Virginia’s Farm Market Fresh program helps eligible seniors get fresh produce and supports local farmers and farmers’ markets.
The program offers coupons to low-income residents age 60 or older, which can be exchanged for fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables and fresh-cut herbs at approved farmers’ markets and roadside stands.
Seniors can complete an application at their local Area Agency on Aging, Eastern Shore Area Agency on Aging/ Community Action Agency, at 757-442-9652. Participation is limited and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
