Est. Read Time: 2 mins

Vouchers that can be redeemed at area farmers markets are available to income-eligible seniors, the Northampton County Department of Human Services’ Area Agency on Aging announced earlier this month. The coupons are worth a total of $20 and are available to county residents age 60 or older who meet the following income requirements:

Single – Income less than $21,775 per year
Married Couple – Income less than $29,471 per year

In the case of married couples, both spouses may obtain coupons. Proof of age and residency is required from anyone who requests the coupons, which are being distributed at locations throughout the county this month. In Hellertown, they will be distributed at the senior center at the Saucon Valley Community Center, 323 Northampton St., on Tuesday, June 23 from 9 to 11 a.m.

The coupons can only be used at state-registered farmers markets, and cannot be redeemed in supermarkets. Locally they can be redeemed at Bechdolt Orchards and Pappy’s Orchard, which have booths at the weekly Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market in Hellertown.
