We’re taking WIC!
VELAS Farmers Markets are certified to accept WIC (Women, Infants and Children) vouchers for 2009. Each year, the US Dept. of Agriculture distributes millions of dollars to families in vouchers which can be redeemed exclusively at certified farmers markets nationwide through the Farmers Market Nutrition Program. In California, each family participating in the WIC Program receives $20 in vouchers for fruits and vegetables starting June of each year. The vouchers are valid through the Summer, Fall and expire November 30.
WIC vouchers give families an opportunity to taste the excellent quality and freshness of local produce available at VELAS Farmers Markets. To learn more about the WIC Program contact us.
