Many farms at The Olympia Farmers Market accept WIC and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks.
Participating farms accept the checks as cash. Please look for the WIC & Senior sign (pictured above left) in participating vendor's booths. Senior checks cannot be redeemed for cash and no change can be given for purchases. WIC checks expire annually.
Funded by both the United States Department of Agriculture and the State of Washington and managed by the Department of Health, the program’s goal is to provide fresh, healthy, unprocessed, locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, and cut herbs to WIC families and low-income seniors. The program also seeks to expand awareness and sales at farmers markets.
