The Hollywood Farmers Market and Hollywood Senior Center are partnering to bring the community a fun and informative Senior Day at the Market on Saturday, July 9, from 8am to 1pm. (The Hollywood Farmers Market is located between NE 44th and 45th Avenues on NE Hancock Street.) Activities will include a special tour at noon; cooking demos for using seasonal ingredients in simple, small meals; tips for shopping at the market on a budget; personal shoppers for seniors; special vendor discounts; live music; and an opportunity to win a basket of market goodies!
There is a special promotion for seniors 65-plus: a set of coupons good for 20 percent off on $25 of produce. The Hollywood Farmers Market accepts Senior FDNP checks. And, there is a new Matching Program for Oregon Trail (SNAP/EBT Cards) as well, called Double Up Food Bucks. Stop by the Info Booth at NE 44th and Hancock any Saturday to learn more about these programs.
