Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program

The Indiana Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) began in 2002 under the Indiana WIC program. Indiana WIC partners with the Family and Social Services Administration Division on Aging and the local area agencies on aging (AAAs), such as CICOA, to serve eligible seniors. The AAAs determine eligibility, provide nutrition education, and distribute checks to participating, income-eligible seniors. Interested seniors should contact their local AAA for information. Not every county participates in the SFMNP.

CICOA provides farmers market checks redeemable at state-approved SFMNP markets in eight counties: Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion, Morgan and Shelby.

Program Information

  • SFMNP is an annual program administered between the months of June-October.
  • Farmers Market Checks are available to participants at no cost.
  • Participants receive a booklet of checks to spend, totaling $40
  • Participants must be 60 years old or over, or age 55 and over, disabled and living in senior housing with congregate nutrition services.
  • We do not take “walk-ins” for farmers market vouchers. You are welcome to obtain applications from us at any time, but we will only distribute booklets during scheduled distribution days.
