Farmers' Market Nutrition Program

The Authorized Markets and Farmers

List of Markets                     List of Farmers

    

Markets and farmers enrolled in the Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) offer customers with $4.00 FMNP checks a place to spend their benefit for fresh, local, unprocessed fruits, vegetables and culinary herbs. Below is a list by county, of current farmers' markets, farm stands and mobile markets enrolled in the Farmers' Market Nutrition Program. Each list also indicates whether a market participates in the NYS Wireless EBT Program and can accept SNAP benefits (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).

More information about each market can be found at the New York State Open Data Website here. Or the Departments simple listing of market here.


 

Note: the Farmers' Market Nutrition Program operates June 1-November 30. Lists of Authorized Farmers are posted in May and removed when the season ends. The lists are updated several times throughout the FMNP season.



Farms that grow and offer for sale fresh fruits and vegetables at farm stand and farmers markets can apply to the FMNP. The Department maintains a list of Farms Authorized in the FMNP and of Farms who are interested in attending additional farmers' markets.


This document is a tool for market operators to help them when recruiting farmers for their market. A market can solicit any farmer on the list.

Here are some Quick Tips for market operators to consider before they make phone calls: hours of the market, day of the week, how many weeks to commit, management structure, vendor fees, requirements for vendors to carry insurance, market promotion actions (e.g. signage, radio ads, newspaper ads, market webpage, etc.), market special events (e.g. music, nutrition education, etc.), parking for the farmer's truck, electricity available, nutrition programming (e.g. FMNP, SNAP, FCC).
