Vouchers must be used only by the person whom they were given. They cannot be transferred to another person.
These checks can be used only at authorized farmers' markets, NOT grocery stores. A list of the markets in Atlantic County is located above. Look for the large yellow "Farmers' Market Nutrition Program" poster to identify farmer.
Vouchers are good for locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. They can not be used for citrus, tropical fruits, or baked/processed goods.
Sign the check on the bottom right-side near the X. Do not sign the voucher until you are ready to purchase your produce.
Vouchers are given in $5.00 increment checks. Seniors do not have to use all checks in one trip, but please redeem all vouchers.
Select at least $5.00 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 September 30.
For questions or concerns in Atlantic County, please call 1-888-426-9243.
DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO USE THEM!
