Looking to eat healthy while saving a buck or two? Senior citizens will have a chance to do both while buying fresh, locally grown produce at the city's farmers market. Farmers market coupons will be available to qualified residents who are at least 60 years old at the Council on Aging in the Citizens Center, 10 Welcome St. The coupons will be distributed Aug. 7. Applicants must demonstrate they are low income by showing proof that they are enrolled in or participate in a government-funded benefit or assistance program. They must bring an identification that shows date of birth, address and proof that they receive one of the following: Supplementary Social Security Income (SSI), Section 8 Housing, energy assistance or Medicaid. Residents of subsidized housing facilities may qualify for the vouchers by providing the Haverhill Council on Aging with a letter from their property manager. An individual's name must appear on the letter. Please contact Kathy Bresnahan or Rita LaBella at the Council on Aging with questions. The farmers market happens Saturday mornings on Bailey Boulevard.
