It’s Farmers Market Season! Farm Direct checks (usually known as Farmers Market coupons) can be used to buy fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets and roadside stands. All WIC participants over the age of 4 months are eligible to receive this benefit, which comes in a booklet of coupons worth $28.
This year, one $28 booklet of Farmers Market coupons have been mailed to each WIC family. This July, additional coupons are being given out upon request to eligible participants, while supplies last. Contact the WIC office by email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 503-846-3555, or text WCWIC to 61222 to request extra coupons before they run out.
For information on how to use Farmers Market coupons, and some great recipe ideas, please visit the Oregon WIC website. Please click here to find a list of participating farmers markets and roadside stands.
