Reminder: FMNP extended through November

For the first time, the Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP – WIC & Seniors) is being extended past its traditional end-date of October 31.

In 2012, FMNP can be used at authorized Maryland farmers markets through November 25th.  Farmers then have one additional week – until November 30 – to deposit their checks in the bank.

The hope is that this will help offset the cost of Thanksgiving for participants, and give farmers and markets even more reason to stay open through the end of November.

And to make it easy to find the nearest open market, here is a map of the 73 farmers markets in Maryland & DC that will be open between November 1 and 25th and accept FMNP:
