Greenport Farmers' Market was selectively chosen to receive supplemental "Fresh Checks" through a grant provided by the Wholesome Wave Foundation. Fresh Checks are vouchers that we will be able to give to anyone using their EBT card for each $5.00 they spend on their card they will get an additional $2.00 to buy fruits and veggies. This is an incentive to introduce SNAP families to the market and to encourage them consume fresh and local produce.
Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)
This program is for WIC participants and low income eligible seniors. The Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) provides checks to low-income families enrolled in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and Senior Nutrition Programs. The checks are redeemable for fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers with the posted sign at the Greenport Farmers’ Market.
