(PLACERVILLE, CA) – The El Dorado County Area Agency on Aging has a limited supply of Farmers’ Market coupon booklets for El Dorado County older adults who meet age and income guidelines. Each booklet has five checks redeemable for $10 each to be used at Certified Farmers’ Markets in California to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, cut herbs and raw unprocessed honey.


“These coupon booklets offer low-income seniors access to locally sourced, highly nutritious fresh produce and honey in a wonderful community-based farmers’ market environment,” said Jordan Brushia, Program Coordinator with El Dorado County Senior Services.

Each eligible senior may receive one booklet. The booklets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, as follows:
