The Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program (FMNCP) is a healthy eating initiative that supports farmers’ markets and strengthens food security across British Columbia. Community partner organizations provide coupons to lower-income families, pregnant people and seniors participating in their food literacy programs. Coupons can be spent at all BCAFM member farmers’ markets that participate in the FMNCP, and can be used to purchase vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs, dairy, herbs, vegetable & fruit plants, honey, meat and fish.
Each household enrolled in the program is eligible to receive a minimum of $27/week in coupons. The program runs throughout the summer months when produce is most abundant across the province. In 2022, coupons can be used at any participating BC Farmers’ Market from June 4th – December 18th.
BC Farmers’ Markets does not give out coupons directly to participants. You must get in touch with your local community partner directly who you can find on our Where It Operates page. Please note that there is high demand and limited funding for this program across BC, and capacity will vary from partner to partner.
