Farmer's Market Voucher Guidelines

Vouchers must be used only by the person whom they were given.  They cannot be transferred to another person.

These checks can be used only at participating farm markets, not grocery stores.

Vouchers are good for locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Do not sign the voucher until you are ready to purchase your produce. 

Vouchers are given in 4-$5.00 checks. Seniors do not have to use the entire $20.00 in one trip, but please redeem all of them.  Farmers are not allowed to give change.  All vouchers must be used by the date on the check.

Lost vouchers will not be replaced.  Please keep your vouchers in a safe place until ready to use.

Due to the growing season, variety of produce, and the farm markets hours of operation, it is advisable to use your vouchers by September 30.

               DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO USE THEM!
