Farmer's Markets Closing for the Season

Thank you to all the participants who took advantage of our Farmer’s Market Checks this season. Checks have been given out for the 2017 year and will return in June through September 2018.

Each season your family will be able to receive $24.00 in checks for use at Farmer’s markets around the state. Spend some quality time with your family at places like The Wind Mill, and Ithaca Farmer’s Market.
After the overwhelming response to the program we would like to pass on some tips to you.

1.)Anyone can cash these checks for you and your family, as long as the produce will be used by you. No WIC ID card, or proxies needed.

2.) Use all of your benefits, or consider declining the farmer’s market checks. The funding will be less each year that issued checks aren’t cashed at farmer’s markets.

3.) Make sure you check the list of markets included with your checks– you have many options as to where they are cashed, including The Windmill.

Please call the main office for an appointment- Walk in's are welcome, but may not be served until scheduled participants are seen
