Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program benefits are now available for eligible families and seniors across the state. The program provides checks to be redeemed at participating farmers’ markets and farm stands through the end of November for the purchase of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.

A new project through the Cornell Cooperative Extension will analyze varying prices of farmers’ market products throughout eastern New York State. 

On Tuesday, April 12, the Old Men of the Mountain met at the County Café on Main Street in Schoharie.

Nearly $2 million in Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program checks will be distributed across the state to expand the United States Department of Agriculture’s $1.5 million program and reach more seniors.
