For some older adults living on limited incomes, eating well can sometimes be a challenge. In Central Jefferson County, where both The Market at Pepper Place and The East Lake Market are located, 26% of senior citizens qualify for SNAP benefits and for Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) coupons. 

Seniors can bring their SFMNP coupon booklet to either market on Saturday, July 1st and receive a free match of their coupons, generously provided by a grant from the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.
This means that your SFMNP $30 coupon booklet will be matched with a 2017 farmers market $30 coupon book!

There are limited funds available, so our limited number of market booklets will be matched on a first-come, first-served basis. Matched dollars must be spent at the Market at which they are received.

If coupons are matched at East Lake Market, the matched dollars must be spent at The East Lake Farmers Market... and the same is true for The Market at Pepper Place!

The Market at Pepper Place is located at 2929 2nd Avenue South in Birmingham's Lakeview District.
The East Lake Farmers Market is located at East Lake United Methodist Church at 7753 1st Avenue South. Both Markets are open on Saturday mornings.

A special thank you to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama for generously providing the grant to make the Senior Market Day possible!
