Farmers markets are a great source of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods; that’s why Gaffney Station farmers market has expanded access to such food for senior and WIC voucher recipients.

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides low-income seniors with coupons that can be exchanged for eligible foods (fruits, vegetables, honey, and fresh-cut herbs, etc.) at farmers’ markets.

The WIC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) is associated with the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, popularly known as WIC. The WIC Program provides supplemental foods, health care referrals and nutrition education at no cost to low-income pregnant, breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding post-partum women, and to infants and children up to 5 years of age, who are found to be at nutritional risk.

Gaffney Station Farmers Market has three authorized farmers that are able to accept these vouchers for the current season. For more information you can contact Gaffney Visitors Center & Art Gallery at (864)487-6244.
