  • You can get WIC for your child, they just won't give WIC to you, they'll explain everything to you when you go down there. You cannot use WIC checks at the farmers market because it's a check and they have to scan it. They have WIC stores usually they are right next to the WIC office you should look into that.

  • WIC gives farmer's market coupons sometimes, but not the actual WIC checks. And you dont have to be pregnant to get WIC. The child just has to be under 5, which yours is.

  • My sis got wic farmers market vouchers, so I know they give them in some places. Call your local office and check. I believe but I could be wrong the only way to get wic for the adult is if you are breastfeeding. Yes your little one would be able to receive wic and most offices used to be very generous. I do not know now with the economic crisis as it is.

  • It could be different in different states but I know our WIC office does give out farmers market vouchers. You can get WIC if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or for a child under the age of 5.
