Watauga County residents aged 60 or older who meet income eligibility requirements may now schedule an appointment to pick up free Farmer’s Market Vouchers from Watauga County Project on Aging.

The vouchers are available to the first 100 people who qualify. Vouchers are good for $42.00 of free produce at the local farmer’s markets. Program eligibility is anyone 60 or older whose income is below $2,096 per month (single persons) or below $2,823 per month for couples.

No documentation is required, quick and easy program registration. Please call for times of voucher distribution, or call to make an appointment. This program is once a year and is available on a first come, first served basis. All vouchers must be redeemed at the farmer’s market before the end of September, 2022.
