Farmers' Market Nutrition Program

The Wisconsin WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) provides food benefits to WIC participants to be redeemed at farmers' markets from June through October. This program offers an opportunity to purchase locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. In addition to checks, families receive education and tips on how to prepare fresh produce. Most participants that receive WIC benefits can receive Farmers Market checks up to $30 per participant (except infants who are up to 9 months old). If you are interested in applying for WIC or if you are already participating and interested in receiving farmer's market benefits please contact the WIC office at 920-232-3350 (Oshkosh) or 920-729-2945 (Neenah).

Farmer's Markets checks can be used June 1 - October 31 at any participating farmers' market or roadside stand throughout the state. Be sure to check that the farmers are WIC approved by looking for the yellow sign saying they are a WIC-approved vendor.

  • Shop early: Getting to the market early means getting the best selection.
  • Do a lap: Walk through the market first to see what is available.

  • Try something new: Take some time to speak with the farmers - they often have great tips on how to best eat or prepare their produce
