WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)

 

The WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) is a dual purpose program which benefits both WIC participants and farmers. In the program, WIC participants are given four $5 coupons with which to purchase authorized fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from authorized farmers at farmers’ markets and farm stands.  

During fiscal year 2017, Ohio received $447,916 in federal funding, which allowed 25,665 participants to receive farmers' market benefits. In all, 296 farmers, 23 markets and 134 farm stands were authorized in 61 counties.  During fiscal year 2018, Madison and Wayne Counties will join the program, bringing the participating county total to 63.
