Non-senior friends or family members may pick up the coupon booklet for a homebound senior but will need to have the senior’s identification and a note authorizing them to receive the coupons.

Eligible seniors will receive $50.00 in coupons redeemable at the local Farmers’ Markets in Carson City or coupons may be used at any other Nevada Farmers Market displaying the appropriate signage. The location for the Farmers Market is 1111 E. William Street, inside the Marv Teixeira Pavilion at Mills Park. The Farmers Market will take place every Saturday starting June 10th through September 30th from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Once the booklets are claimed, they cannot be replaced if lost or damaged. Eligible seniors can use the coupons from June 1st – September 15th. This program is made possible through the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP).
