WIC Farmer's Markets

We can help

  • Encourage WIC participants to eat and prepare fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.

How this works

WIC local agencies provide farmer's market checks to qualifying clients to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at local WIC approved farmers markets. Find Markets espanol These checks are valid for one season (June through October). WIC farmers markets provide fresh, unprepared, locally grown fruits and vegetables to WIC participants. Local WIC clinics host pop-up markets at their agencies to help increase access to healthy, local produce for families across Rhode Island. Local WIC clinic staff also host 'Fun at the Farm' events at some of the WIC approved farmers markets. These events provide hands-on activities, allowing adults and children the opportunity to learn new ways to prepare, and taste, locally grown fruits and vegetables. Local WIC staff attend these events and can help WIC clients with any questions they have while at the market.
