The Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) allows qualified participants to buy nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables using FMNP vouchers from participating farmers’ market associations to improve their diets. FMNP:
- is not a statewide program;
- provides resources to low-income women and children in the form of fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and culinary herbs from farmers' markets; and
- increases the domestic consumption of agricultural commodities by helping develop or expand domestic farmers' markets.
