Community Resources: UpdatedGeneral Overview: Senior Farmers’ Market Program

The Oklahoma Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) offers low-income older citizens an opportunity to purchase fresh, locally-grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs from certified farmers.  In addition to offering nutritious foods, the program supports local economies by increasing the use of farmers’ markets.

DHS is able to offer EBT cards to seniors who qualify based on certain requirements such as:

  • At least one individual in the household must be age 60 or older
  • Native Americans may participate at age 55 or older
  • The individual must live in one of the participating counties

View income eligibility requirements.

To assist clients in applying for SFMNP, workers may send the client’s name and mailing address to Cari Crittenden. Phone Number (405) 982-3721.

DHS Aging Services partners with local community organizations to distribute applications to potential senior customers.  Seniors then fill out the application and return it to either a participating local community organization; for example Norman Aging Services, Moore Food Resource, or INCOG Tulsa, or DHS Aging Services.

Once the application is approved, a SFMNP-EBT card is issued to the customer. The customer is then able to visit a participating famer’s market with the card to purchase fresh, locally-grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
