More farmers market checks are coming in mid-August. Eligible WIC families can enjoy locally grown fruits and vegetables with special checks that you can spend on produce at farmers markets and farm stands.

Who Can Get Checks

  • Participating women, children and infants over 4 months of age who have not yet received them
  • Families with more than 3 WIC-eligible participants (family maximum is 5)
  • Infants who are now 4 months old and were not eligible in June

Checks are limited and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis until we run out.
