Don't Miss This Year's Farmers Market Training Webinars!

Farmers interested in participating in the FMNP (Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program) or WIC VF (WIC Vegetables and Fruit Check Program) this market season are invited to attend group webinar-viewing sessions at CCE Wayne.

Training Requirement
New farmers participating in FMNP and all farmers participating in the WIC VF program must undergo a formal training offered by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, and submit proof of training. CCE Wayne will host these one-hour webinar presentations and administer a program quiz that will be returned to the Department as proof of training. New farmers in the FMNP must undergo formal training in their first year only. All farmers in the WIC VF program must undergo formal training every year.

Webinars are free and last 1 hour. The presentation is delivered via an online application called WebEx and the audio is available only through the phone. There are two types of webinars:

  1. an FMNP webinar
  2. an WIC VF webinar

You may also register for any of the online webinars independently on the Department website: http://www.agriculture.ny.gov/AP/agservices/fmnp-wicvf-webinars.html.

Buy Local in Wayne County

Our Buy Local Campaign is a community based initiative that evolved out of expressed interest to sustain local agriculture and build a stronger local food system in Wayne and surrounding counties. Our goals are to foster the environmental, economic and social vitality of our community by increasing the connections between consumers and farmers. Through outreach, marketing, and special initiatives we seek to raise individual and institutional awareness about the benefits of buying fresh locally grown and made products and to make local food an integral part of daily life. We are currently working on increasing farm to restaurant connections, establishing farm to institution connections and providing access to fresh and nutritious food to low-income families.
