The 2023 WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program wrapped up on July 26, 2023 after another successful year! Congress began the program in 1992 with funding from the United States Department of Agriculture to bring more fresh fruits and vegetables to WIC families while familiarizing them with farmers markets and supporting the local community.
PHFE WIC distributed farmers market checks to more than 23,000 families, totaling more than $690,000 worth of fruits and vegetables, this summer!
WIC Families: Shop with your checks before November 30th!
WIC farmers market checks will expire on November 30! Checks can be used to purchase fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and cut edible herbs. They cannot be used to purchase honey, nuts, eggs, meat, flowers, baked goods, dried fruit, plants, or non-food items.
Thank you to all of our community partners for spreading the word, and to farmers market managers, staff, and vendors for their support to help make this a successful season.
