Farmers Market Checks Now Available Through WIC - 07/2022
The WIC Farmers’ Market Nutritional Program provides checks to eligible WIC participants to buy locally grown, unprepared fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs to eligible pregnant women, post-partum women, and children 2-5 years old.
Each eligible WIC participant receives five $5 checks that can be redeemed for fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown by local farmers. Checks are available first-come-first-serve and must be requested through the local WIC office. The Farmers Market Checks are physical checks separate from the eWIC card and must be used by November 30, 2022.
