Our mission is cultivating opportunities for consumers to buy fresh produce from local growers.

On behalf of the Departments of Agriculture, Departments of Health, Senior Agencies and Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs) that coordinate the WIC or Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, welcome to our website.

This website is an effort to improve the communication with our association members and partner agencies and also to better communicate our programs with U.S. residents seeking ways to access locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Please review the State Programs list for a program in your state and contact a coordinating agency for more information on how to participate in either of these programs where you live.

In addition, we have provided information on the site for farmers interested in becoming an EBT retailer to accept SNAP purchases at farmers markets as well. Refer to the MarketLink section for information on how to begin the application process.

Please refer to the Resources section for information regarding other USDA Supplemental Nutrition Programs and programs benefiting farmers markets.

To learn more about the organization, the programs it supports, its leaders, and membership benefits see the About page.
