Commitment to Equity and Inclusion
Portland Farmers Market (PFM) is committed to offering safe public gathering places and programs and to the equitable treatment of all, including vendors, shoppers, supporters, staff, and board.
Diversity in Hiring
We believe that to be an effective leader at growing an equitable, healthy, and sustainable local food system, we need to reflect those principles internally. It all starts with a strong foundation. Embracing equity as a guiding principle, we encourage employment applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds and from underrepresented groups. We believe that when our staff represents a diversity of perspectives and life experiences, we can be most responsive to the needs of our vendors and shoppers, and better reflect the communities which our markets call home.
