Can I Get a Hip-Hip-Horray for the Ohio Department of Health?

October 9th, 2008

While at the farmer’s market on Saturday I noticed a sign at one of the booths.

The farmer’s market accepts WIC. I’ve heard of larger communities in more progressive states doing this, but I didn’t know the program had reached rural Ohio. How exciting. I sure hope that there are a lot of people taking advantage of this program.

Is this happening in your area? I sure hope so.

    I’m not sure if it is happening in our part of Ohio or not though but we don’t go to Farmer’s Markets anyways.

    Yes, the MI farmers Markets accept WIC as well, although sadly, I’ve never seen them in use at any markets I’ve ever been too. I’m not sure people even know it’s an option.
