California farmers provide nutritious foods to families throughout the state, the nation, and the world. The WIC Program supports the consumption of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, and encourages shopping at farmers' markets. The WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) provides one booklet of four $7 checks ($28 total) to eligible recipients for use at WIC-authorized Farmers' Markets and Farm/Roadside Stands between May and November of each year.
For information about the Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP), please contact the California Department of Food and Agriculture at www.cdfa.ca.gov/SeniorFarmersMrktNutritionPrgm/.
In August of 2019, the first farmer in California was authorized to accept the electronic Cash Value Benefit (CVB) using a wireless terminal. Currently, there are over 65 farmers authorized to accept the California WIC Card.
