Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)


The Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) is a USDA-funded nutrition grant program that is administered by MDA in conjunction with the Maryland Department of Health and the Maryland Department of Aging. Funds are utilized by state agencies to support participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and low-resource seniors who participate in the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. Participants in both programs receive an annual voucher of either $30 for WIC or $50 for seniors to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers markets between June 1 and November 30.

In Maryland, all of the 100+ authorized farmers markets throughout the State have at least one farmer who accepts FMNP.  Nearly 200 farmers are authorized to sell in farmers markets or at their farm stand. See the directory below to find a farmers market near you!

For farmers interested in participating in the Farmers Market Nutrition Program:
1. Visit the MDOneStop website to create your account and submit the Farmer Application Package. 
2. Attend an FMNP training 
3. Once approved by MDH, MDA will send you an FMNP Farmer Handbook, FMNP posters, and pricing signs to use at your stand
 *note* There is no cost or deadline to participate in this program!

In 2024, FMNP will transition from a check-based system to a digital one. MDA is looking to farmers and farmers markets to provide valuable input on this program's transition. Take this 2-minute survey to share your input!'
