For Farmers

The Maine WIC Program seeks to girlonpumpkinsupplement nutrition for pregnant women, babies and young children. Fresh fruits and vegetables are an important part of that nutrition, and it's important to us to make sure Maine families have access to good, locally grown products.

The purpose of Maine WIC Farmer's Market Nutrition Program is to increase use of fresh, unprocessed locally grown fruits and vegetables by WIC-supported families, increase their awareness of Farmers Markets in support of local food production.

This section of the Web site is intended to give farmers an overview of the Maine WIC Program as well as provide information needed to maintain compliance with Program rules, policies, and procedures. Please be sure that it is reviewed. You may reproduce it as needed, or contact our office if you need additional copies.

Once an application has been selected for authorization, at least one farmer will be required to attend new vendor training.

We thank you for growing nutritious foods, and for helping us to provide that food to women, infants, and children in Maine. Your courtesy and helpfulness in assisting WIC customers is greatly appreciated.
