Subject:           2009 and 2010 WIC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program Start-Up Package For
                   Certified Farmers’ Market Managers

I am writing to welcome you to the 2009 and 2010 Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Farmers’
Market Nutrition Program (FMNP). Thank you for your continued support in providing fruit and
vegetables to WIC participants. We mailed you an application to you in December 2008. Please submit
the documents to us as soon as possible, another application is enclosed for your convenience. You
must submit your application by March 13, 2009, and receive notification that your application was
approved and you are WIC certified. We accept late applications; however, farmers within your market
that are WIC FMNP certified for the 2009 season may not accept WIC FMNP checks prior to you
completing the application process.

Important Changes for 2009 and 2010 Season

The current season application covers a two year certification period. This application will be in effect
for the years 2009 and 2010. You will not be required to submit a new WIC FMNP application until
2011. However, you will receive a letter from the WIC FMNP in 2010 requesting that you mail or fax a
copy of your 2010 Certificate For Certified Farmers' Market.

2009 and 2010 WIC FMNP Application and Instructions
The 2009 and 2010 Certified Market Managers’ Application form and instructions are enclosed. For
your convenience, we have perforated the application page for easy removal from the booklet. All
market managers are required to submit a copy of the most current “Certificate of Certified Farmers'
Market” with your application. (See example of this document on page 9)

Market Managers have three options on how to receive training on the regulations that govern the

first year with the CA WIC Program, you will need to receive face-to-face training. The WIC program
will provide this training in March 2009. You will receive information specifying the training dates and
details in early 2009.

Authorized Signature
You must provide an original signature on step five of the 2009 and 2010 Market Manager Application.
Your signature on the application acknowledges that you have been trained on the CA WIC FMNP
Administrative Guidelines. Please make sure that you date your signature.

2009 and 2010 FMNP Administrative Requirements
You are required by Federal regulations to adhere to all of the FMNP administrative requirements and
check booklet guidance located in this packet. The State WIC Program is mailing 2009 and 2010
applications to those farmers who participated last year. As a WIC FMNP Certified Market Manager
you are required to oversee that all farmers within your market who accept WIC FMNP checks have
been certified through the WIC Program.

2009 and 2010 WIC FMNP Check Handling
Please review page 20, titled “How to stamp the WIC FMNP Check,” and follow the instructions. A
draft of the 2009 WIC FMNP $2 check is enclosed. All WIC FMNP checks are to be handled like
cash. All checks must contain the assigned FMNP 6-digit WIC ID number in the white box on the face
of the check and be endorsed on the back prior to depositing them in the bank.

WIC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program Approved Produce List
On page 23 is the 2009 and 2010 WIC FMNP Approved Produce List. Please review this list as it
indicates what fruits and vegetables the WIC participants are allowed to purchase with their FMNP
checks. WIC shoppers understand that they can only purchase California Grown produce at the
Farmers’ Market. Please provide this list to all individuals that will sell produce at your farm stand.

The WIC FMNP 2009 - 2010 WIC Certification Sign
You must assure that all Farmers participating in the WIC FMNP post the WIC “2009 California
Certified Farmers’ Market” sign conspicuously at points of sale. Once your application has been
processed and accepted, you will be mailed two WIC Certification signs. You will receive a WIC “2010
California Certified Farmers’ Market" sign once you submit the 2010 Certificate For Certified Farmers'
Market.

We enjoyed working with you during the 2008 season. We are looking forward to your support in 2009.

Market Manager acknowledges and accepts the USDA FMNP regulations of a Certified
Farmers’ Market to be “An Association of local farmers who assemble at a defined location

           • Provide CA WIC Program with a copy of both your Certified Producers and
              Certified Farmers’ Market certificate.
           • Solicit local farmers to join your market and keep documentation of your
              efforts for review by any FMNP representative.
           • Not prohibit another farmer from joining your market on the dates and times
              you are serving CA WIC participants.
           • Not accept any WIC checks until certified by the CA WIC Program as both a
              Farmer and Market Manager.

                   Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)




1. What is the CA WIC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)?

   The WIC FMNP is a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) program created by Congress in
   1992 to accomplish 2 goals:
      • To provide fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables from Farmers’ Markets to low-income
          families, and
      • To expand consumer awareness and use of Farmers’ Markets among low-income
          families.

   The 2009 and 2010 WIC FMNP provides a check booklet worth $20 per eligible WIC family
   to redeem for fresh fruits and vegetables and fresh cut herbs at certified Farmers’ Markets
   during the months of May through November. The WIC FMNP also provides nutrition education
   related to purchasing and using fresh fruits and vegetables.

2. How is WIC FMNP Funded?

 The USDA provides the grant funding for the FMNP. States operating the WIC FMNP must match
 thirty percent of the Federal Administrative allowance through program revenues, in-kind funds, or
 local donations. California’s WIC FMNP budget for federal fiscal year (FFY) 2008 is $2.3 million.

3. Who can participate?
   Women and children, from 7 months of age to their 5th birthday, are eligible for services provided
   by the WIC FMNP, in designated areas of California.

4. What are the benefits from the FMNP?
   WIC Participants – Surveys found that ninety-seven percent of California WIC participants said
   they ate more fresh fruits and vegetables due to their participation in FMNP and sixty-six percent
   said they will continue purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers’ markets even when
   they no longer received FMNP checks. Children learning to eat more fresh produce will have
   less of a risk of becoming obese.

   Local Farms/Farmers’ Markets – Eighty-eight percent of the farms/Farmers’ Markets surveyed
   nationally reported that the FMNP increased their sales. Forty-three percent reported growing a
   wider variety of foods to sell at the markets. Over the past five years, the small Certified
   Farmers’ in California has earned over $11 million dollars through the WIC FMNP.



5. How are California Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program Checks Processed?

   the California State Treasurer’s Office.
