Information for Market Managers
One of the goals of the WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) is to expand the awareness of,
use of, and sales at farmers' markets. Each year, the WIC FMNP meets this goal
by giving checks to WIC families to spend at farmers' markets. Many WIC
families have never been to a farmers' market before. For that reason, they
provide a new customer base to increase farmers' market and vendor sales.
To be an approved FMNP market, the market must have:
an established site or sites of operation;
established days and hours of operation; and
at least three farmers present during market hours.
Application process for new farmers' markets
Market managers should submit the market
application (PDF, 23 KB) to the state WIC
When a farmers' market is approved for the first time, the
market manager will receive the following.
A letter stating the market has been approved.
A training manual explaining FMNP rules.

Farmers' market information is provided to farmers and WIC
Each year, the market manager will receive a reapplication form from
the state FMNP office. This provides certification that the
market is still in operation.
