Farm2WIC Resources for Market Managers & Vendors
Want to sell more of the fruits and vegetables you grow? Getting authorized to accept the FVC is separate from the seasonal Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP). But it’s easy, and FVCs provide a lot of additional benefits: higher check values, year-round use, monthly issuance by all WIC agencies, and the option to be processed by a manager instead of each vendor.
