Farmer's Market 2004
Seniors from Hasbrouck Heights and
bus-loads from other Bergen County communities visited
the Boulevard Farmer's Market on a bright and sunny August 3, 2004. As an
accommodation, the market was opened at 10:00 a.m.
Bergen County Division of Senior Services provided about 400 free Senior Farmers' Market
Nutrition Program (SFMNP) checks ($20 in five dollar denominations) to Bergen County
residents 60+ years to spend at at approved participating farm markets. Registration was
limited and checks were available on a first-come, first-served basis. Eligible persons
could register once a year.
Only locally grown fruits, vegetables and herbs could be purchased with the SFMNP checks.
All four checks did not have to be used at the same time, but had to be used before
the expiration date. Change was not issued.
The Hasbrouck Heights Chamber of Commerce has
sponsored the Boulevard Farmer's Market for five years.
