Farmers' Market Nutrition Program

The goals of the Wisconsin WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) are:

Ø  To provide WIC participants with checks to purchase locally-grown fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs at farmers markets.
Ø  To provide WIC participants with nutrition education and the resources to encourage the consumption of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Ø  To increase the awareness and use of farmers markets.

The WIC FMNP provides a one-time food benefit per growing season to WIC families. Each family receives checks that are redeemed at local farmers markets from June through October. Approximately 1,000 Wisconsin farmers currently participate in this program.


The WIC FMNP has many resources available to learn how to shop for, prepare and store fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.

To find farmers market locations and other information, contact your local WIC Office:  Statewide directory of WIC Offices listed by county.
