WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program
Providing fresh, unprepared, locally-grown produce to WIC participants
Want to learn more about the WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)? This site includes information about the program, who the program serves and common locations with a map of State agencies that participate in the WIC FMNP, as well as links to addition resources, such as State agency contacts and a WIC FMNP Fact Sheet.
Explore these resources you can use to educate participants on the benefits of Farmers’ Markets, which include a Farmers’ Market Directory to help participants find the markets closest to where they live, work and shop, and Maryland WIC's Farmers' Market Cookbook, also available in Spanish (found at the bottom of the page). This cookbook provides recipes and guidance on using WIC benefits at the farmers' market, and tips on how to help WIC participants increase their intake of fruits and vegetables with kids activities, food safety and storage tips and more!
And you can check out the Farm2WIC Toolkit created to help develop best practices to cultivate WIC customers and expand outreach strategies.
