As you probably know, 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, starting June 1st, one $28 booklet of Farmers Market coupons will be mailed to each WIC family. Starting in July, additional coupons will be given out upon request to eligible participants, while supplies last. Please check back on this page or follow us on Facebook for regular updates.
