Westosha Senior Center Farmer Market is open weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Veggies are picked fresh daily. On Saturdays treat yourself to a tour of WSCC Healing Garden and the best array of fresh-picked vegetables we have to offer.

We are excited to announce that we are now a vendor for Racine/Kenosha Community Action Agency’s Veggie Voucher program.  The program is for low-income (maximum monthly gross income: $1968 single, $2658 couple), Kenosha County residents, 60 yrs. or older. Each eligible senior receives $25 in free vouchers to purchase Wisconsin-grown fruit and vegetables at participating Farmers Markets and Farm Stands. Spend your vouchers at Westosha Senior Center Farmer Market to benefit the Center as you enjoy delicious, fresh-picked produce.

To get your vouchers, call Lori at 657-0840 ext. 220.
