Governor Andrew Cuomo reminds residents that Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program benefits are now available for eligible families and seniors across New York State.

The program provides checks to be redeemed at participating farmers’ markets and farm stands now through the end of November for the purchase of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Approximately 250,000 booklets consisting of six $4.00 checks will be distributed this year for the purchase of fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables from over 600 farmers’ markets and farm stands across the state.
