Farmer's Market Coupons Available Mid-July

Written By Editor on 7/13/21 | 7/13/21

Farmers Markets and participating Farm Stands are now open to provide farm fresh fruits and vegetables for good health and nutrition.  Again, this year, Delaware County senior citizens may take advantage of the Farmers Market Coupon Program to receive twenty dollars ($20) worth of free New York State grown produce.  These coupons can only be used for fresh fruits and vegetables, no baked or processed foods, at participating vendors.  Delaware County Office for the Aging will coordinate the distribution of the booklets for households of eligible seniors.


To be eligible for Farmers Market Coupons, a person must be:

  1. A senior (age 60 or older),

  2. AND a NY state resident,

  3. AND currently receiving or eligible for SSI, public assistance or Section 8 housing subsidy;

OR have an income that meets one of the following criteria: a one person household with a gross income of $1,986 or less per month; a two person household with a combined gross income of $2,686 or less per month; a three-person household with a combined gross income of $3,386 or less per month.  


This year, each older adult in a household is eligible to receive one coupon booklet, if they meet the age and income requirements.

Eligible seniors must personally sign to receive their coupon booklet; no one else will be allowed to sign for them unless they have a legal POA, and can show proof.  A client may elect to have a proxy pick up coupon booklets for them.  The proxy must present a proxy form signed by the client at time of pick up.  A client can call the office to request a proxy form be mailed/emailed to them.  At the markets, caregivers/others can redeem coupons if the recipient is unable to shop in person.

Coupon booklets can be mailed this year if the recipient has SNAP, Medicaid, Medicare Savings Program, or the Extra Help Program.  **Clients take full responsibility for mailed coupons and will not be issued another booklet if they are lost in the mail.**

The deadline for distributing Farmers Market Coupons this year August 30; booklets cannot be issued after this date.  Coupons are only valid during the current program year from July 1 – November 30, 2021.


Eligible seniors may pick up coupons at the Office for the Aging at 97 Main Street, Suite 2, Delhi; Monday-Friday, 8:00am-4:00pm.  Other distribution sites include senior dining centers and senior housing units.  Please contact Yvonne Brock at Delaware County Office for the Aging, 607-832-5750, for further information.
