Farmers markets are a good source of Iowa-grown fresh produce. Lisa Martin, WIC Coordinator with Marion County Public Health tells KNIA KRLS News that WIC participants can use WIC cash vouchers at participating farmers market vendors. Martin says participants must have been current on WIC appointments through the end of May. Vendors may sign up to participate by contacting Paul Ovrom with the Iowa Department of Agricultural Programs, by following this link: http://www.iowaagriculture.gov/Horticulture_and_FarmersMarkets/farmersMarketNutritionProgram.asp
