All proceeds will benefit the WIC program at the farmers market. WIC, which stands for Women Infants Children, is a state program that provides a small amount of supplemental food to low-income new mothers and children. Families eligible for the program can visit the market's information table once per week to receive two $5 coupons that can be used toward the purchase of locally grown fruits, vegetables, meats or eggs.

In 2022, the market has distributed an average of $180 worth of coupons each week, with some weeks reaching as much as $300.
