Get $25 Worth of Farmer’s Market Coupons for Free!

tomatoes

Craving some fresh zucchini or ripe strawberries? LifePath will be distributing 600 free farmer’s market coupon booklets worth $25 each, and one of these coupon booklets could be yours! The coupons are a part of a program from the MA Dept. of Agricultural Resources designed to help seniors get fresh, local fruits and vegetables and to help local farmers sell more produce.

In order to be eligible for the coupon booklets, you must be at least 60 years old and earn $23,107 or less as an individual or $31,284 or less as a couple. For each additional family member, please add $8,177 to the income limit. Proof of age and income is not required, although you will need to sign your name to attest that you meet the criteria to receive a coupon booklet. You do not need to attend a Senior Center or participate in any other programs to be eligible.

Each booklet contains 10 coupons worth $2.50 each, although please note no cash can be given as change. (You may want to bring small bills and coins so you can pay the difference instead of using only part of another coupon.) Coupons will only be accepted by participating farmers at farmer’s markets or farm stands. They do not expire until October 31, 2019. You will receive a pamphlet listing participating locations when you pick up your farmer’s market coupon booklet. Each person can only receive one coupon booklet per year. You can use your coupons to buy fruits, vegetables, fresh cut herbs, and honey. Other types of items for sale at the markets cannot be purchased with the coupons.

Coupon booklets will be available at the following locations on the dates specified:
