Senior Farmers’ Market Vouchers

Representatives from the Essex County Division of Senior Services will be at the Montclair Farmers’ Market on July 29 to distribute Senior Farmers’ Market Vouchers worth $50 to eligible seniors. The vouchers can be used at the Montclair Farmers’ market and are eligible for participating in City Green’s Good Food Bucks program to double the value of voucher money, up to $30.

The Good Food Bucks program doubles the value of SNAP, WIC, & SENIOR FMNP benefits up to $30 – so $30 of SNAP, EBT or FMNP benefits buys another $30 of fresh produce at the Montclair Farmers’ Market.
