Market Requirements for Approval for Seniors

Market Requirements
Only authorized farmers' markets may redeem Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)checks. For a market to be an SFMNP market it must meet the following criteria:

    Criteria for a Market to Accept Farmers' Market Nutrition Program Vouchers
  • The market must be an organized market. To be considered "organized" the market must have an established contact person/decisionmaker and meet at a named location on specified days and times.
  • The market must be registered with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and approved as a Kentucky Proud? member.
  • The market must have fresh Kentucky-grown produce.
  • The market must be an estabished market with at least one year of experience in operation.

    If a market meets the criteria above, then markets will be rated according to the following items:
  • What is the poverty level in the county? (A higher poverty level will be weighted positively.)
  • What is the history of the market season? (A longer season is weighted positively.)
  • Is the number of participating farmers sufficient to provide an ample variety of eligible produce? (A higher number of farmers per capita is weighted positively.)

    Criteria used to authorize farmers
    Participating farmers in the program must:
  • Be member of an approved farmers' market;
  • Be a Kentucky grower
  • Attend a training session each year;
  • Accept checks for only for fruits and vegetables the farmers has produced in Kentucky; and
  • Sign an agreement that they understand and agree to follow all the rules for participation in the FMNP program
