FARMERS MARKET NUTRITION PROGRAM

Texas WIC
Texas Department of Agriculture
USDA

The USDA’s WIC program provides supplemental foods, health care referrals and nutrition education at no cost to low-income pregnant, breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to 5 years of age, who are found to be at nutritional risk.

In addition to their regular benefits, eligible WIC clients are issued vouchers which can be used to buy a variety of fresh produce and herbs from participating farmers’ markets. Markets are set up at 5 locations at or near WIC clinics in Tarrant County. How to participate:

  • Qualifying WIC participants (pregnant, breastfeeding, postpartum women and children ages 1-5), bring a current WIC shopping list to register at scheduled Neighborhood Farmers Markets.
  • You will receive $30 worth of vouchers (per eligible client), which can be used to buy locally grown whole fruits, vegetables and herbs.
  • No cash change is given for vouchers. Lost, stolen or expired vouchers cannot be replaced.

FMNP Expands Offerings Through Cowtown and GROW North Texas Farmers

Serving the community for over 30 years, Cowtown Farmers Market offers locally grown produce and artisan goods grown or produced within 150 miles of Fort Worth. This year, we are partnering with them to offer FMNP at Cowtown’s Wednesday Farmers Markets.

GROW North Texas is a non-profit that works to connect North Texans to food, farms, and community. They operate Market Provisions, a non-profit, micro-grocery store located at the Dallas Farmer’s Market and participate in FMNP at several locations in North Texas. This year, GROW North Texas will join us at four Neighborhood Farmers Markets locations in Tarrant county at or near WIC clinics.

All Neighborhood Farmers Markets will accept FMNP vouchers and the Lone Star Card (SNAP benefits) for eligible items as well as credit cards, debit cards, and cash. These markets will be held as before to support WIC clients through FMNP, are open to the public, and include:

  • More participating farms
  • A larger selection of produce
  • Eggs, meats, and cheese
  • Honey, jams, jellies, and other products
