If you have not gotten your Farmers Market coupons yet, they are still available at the Mealsite manager’s office. If you are a low-income Westerly senior 60 or older who meets the USDA guidelines and have not gotten these certificates this year, you may receive a booklet of three $5 certificates that may be used to buy local produce at any of the farmers’ markets, including the one to be held at the senior center on Thursday, Aug. 30, from 12:15 to 2:30 p.m.

Applicants must appear in person to get the certificates, and a husband and wife may both receive these certificates.
