Miguel Pires, the owner of Zandra’s Taqueria in Haymarket, said he was confused at first why so many customers were flocking to his restaurant in mid-November.
“Then the management team basically told me I was getting all these vouchers coming in,” Pires said.
In early November, the town printed and mailed four $25 vouchers to each of its 460 residences as part of its financial assistance program called “Helping Haymarket” – or just over 1,800 vouchers altogether. The program, which ended Dec. 5, allowed residents to use the vouchers like cash at any of 20 participating town businesses.

We didn’t want to make residents or business owners in need jump through unnecessary hurdles, and the voucher program seemed like one of the easiest ways to prevent that. Thank you, amazing post!
