How to become a Community Partner and distribute coupons

  2. You must have a BCAFM Farmers’ Market Member as your local market partner. This market must also apply for the FMNCP at the same as you are applying. Please see our BC Farmers’ Market Trail website for listings of all member farmers’ markets.
  3. If you were in the Program during the previous year, you will receive an email in January about the application process. If you are new to the Program, contact nutrition@bcfarmersmarket.org to be added to our mailing list.
  4. Submit your online application for review.
  5. An email will be sent to you regarding the status of your application.
  6. You may send an email to nutrition@bcfarmersmarket.org and we will let you know when applications are open for the next year.

Each household enrolled in the program is eligible to receive a minimum of $21/week in coupons. The program runs throughout the summer months when produce is most abundant across the province. In 2019, coupons can be used at any participating BC Farmers’ Market from June 11th – November 3rd.
