Senior's Farmers Market Program back in the Midlands

The Department of Social Services' "Senior Farmers Market" program will be open at several locations this week.

The program allows low-income seniors to buy $25 worth of $5 vouchers to spend at local farmer's markets.

If you live in Orangeburg county, there are four centers where you can pick up you vouchers:

The program will be running at these locations through Friday. Each day, the service will run from 9 a.m. until noon.

The Senior Farmer's Market program may also be available at certain Lexington locations. The programs are ongoing until they run out of vouchers.
