It is once again time to start thinking about the Warren County Senior Farmers Market Program, which begins in July.
The Senior Farmers Market Program is for Warren County residents who are 60 years and older and meet income guidelines. This program is designed to assist seniors in purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables by utilizing vouchers at the Warren County Farmers Market.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for eligible senior citizens to increase their daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables at no cost, and support our local farming community,” said Linsey Arfsten, health educator with the Warren County Health Department.
Authorized farmers provide fresh, unprocessed, Tennessee-grown produce including fruits, herbs and vegetables. This helps the local economy as well as improves the participant’s health. Participants will receive $30 to $40 in vouchers for July and August to be used at the Warren County Farmers Market.
To be eligible for the program, seniors must be a resident of Warren County and be age 60 or over.
The senior must also meet income guidelines as shown below:
• Family of one –  $15,171 annually, $1,265 monthly
• Family of two – $20,449 annually, $1,705 monthly
• Family of three – $25,727 annually, $2,144 monthly
• Family of four – $31,005 annually, $2,584 monthly
The program is made possible through a partnership with the Warren County Senior Center, Warren County Health Department, and Warren County Farmers Market.
