ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Women and children enrolled in the state WIC program can soon get their hands on some fresh fruit and vegetables.  The program will start a farmers market in Albany next week.    

WIC provides nutritious food to 4,000 women and children under the age of five in Dougherty County.

For six days beginning next week, farmers will bring their fresh produce to the Health Department on South Slappey for people enrolled in the program to pick up. 

"This program is important because it lets our women know the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables during their pregnancies as well as after they've had their baby.  The program is also for infants and children under the age of five," said WIC Coordinator Joyce Malone.    

Those enrolled will get five, $6 coupons to buy produce.  The farmers market runs June 28th through 30th and July 6th through 8th, from 10:00AM to 3:00PM.
