Manchester senior citizens are invited to participate in the Massachusetts Farmer’s market Coupon Program, hosted by SeniorCare, Inc. and the Manchester Council on Aging. This program is designed to provide an opportunity for older adults to shop at Farmer’s Markets, eat more locally-grown fresh vegetables and fruits, enjoy the health benefits and delicious flavor of fresh fruits and vegetables, and support local farmers.
Income eligible seniors can receive $25 in coupons that can be used to purchase fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables, cut herbs and unprocessed honey at the Cape Ann Farmer’s Market.
The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market is held on Thursdays from 3-6:30 p.m. at Harbor Loop in Gloucester.
Coupons are available now in the Council on Aging office at Town Hall. Coupons are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. To qualify for this program: be at least 60 years of age, have a monthly income at or below $1,986 for a one-person household or $2,686 for a two-person household or participate in at least one of the following means-tested programs: food stamps/SNAP, fuel assistance/low-income home energy assistance, MassHealth, Medicaid, transitional assistance, or emergency aid.
