About WIC Farmers' Markets
WIC Farmers' Markets provide, fresh, unprepared, locally grown fruits and vegetable to WIC participants. WIC provides vouchers to qualifying clients to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at local WIC-approved Farmers' Markets. The Farmer's market vouchers are valid for one season, from June through October.
The expansion of Pop-Up Farmers' Markets' to WIC clinics helped increase the redemption rates and access to healthy local produce for families across Rhode Island. These Pop-Up Markets also offer an opportunity for local farmers to reach new customers.
Some WIC Farmers' Markets across Rhode Island include "Fun at the Farm" events. 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.
