The Utah Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is a new produce incentive program offering $50 to qualified seniors to spend at authorized farmers markets. SFMNP vouchers can be spent on fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and honey at local markets.

 Through partnership with the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and WIC offices, we are thrilled to reach nearly 3,000 low income seniors across the state.
