The Hudson Valley is known for some of its amazing farmers markets that usually run now until the fall.

Orange County is taking initiative and giving Veterans a more than deserved discount at some of their up coming farmers markets.

This summer Veterans from Orange County will be eligible for "Fresh Connect coupon" program. The Fresh Connect Coupon program provides 10 $2 coupons, $20 all together, to service members and their immediate family.

In a press release Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus  says "I’m proud that Orange County is recognizing veterans with the Fresh Connect vouchers. It is a great way to help veterans and thank them for everything they have done for our country. It is also a wonderful way to support the agricultural community.”

The Fresh Connect Coupons can be picked up from 10am until 3pm on June 15th and July 20 at the Goshen Farmers Market. For a full list of farmers markets this summer visit orangetourism.org/agritourism.
