Low income Atlantic County residents, age 60 years and older are encouraged to take advantage of the state's farm market produce voucher program, coordinated through the Atlantic County Division of Intergenerational Services, that provides an opportunity to purchase locally grown produce using $30 worth of free vouchers. The vouchers may be used at participating farm markets from July through November.
For the safety of participants, vouchers will be distributed by mail this year. Interested residents may call the county’s information and assistance hotline at 1-888-426-9243 to request vouchers.
If all requirements are met, vouchers, guidelines and a list of participating farm markets will be mailed to the verified address. Vouchers may only be used by the person to whom they were provided. Lost or stolen vouchers cannot be replaced.

Vouchers are good for locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. They cannot be used for citrus, tropical fruits, or baked/processed goods.

Vouchers are given in $6.00 increment checks. Seniors do not have to use all checks in one trip, but please redeem all vouchers.
Select at least $6.00 worth of produce, since you will not receive cash change for your purchase. All vouchers must be used between the valid dates.
Lost vouchers will not be replaced. Please keep your vouchers in a safe place until ready to use.
Due to the growing season, weather, availability of produce, and the farm markets hours of operation, it is advisable to use your vouchers by the end of October. A list of participating farmers’ markets is located below.
