Portland Farmers Market partners with a number of incredible local organizations to bring programs to our markets that inspire community.
Our companion charitable organization makes healthy, locally grown food accessible to under-served Oregonians. Farmers Market Fund’s Double Up Food Bucks program provides SNAP shoppers with a dollar-for-dollar match (up to $20 per week) to buy additional fruits and vegetables at 60+ farmers markets across Oregon. Double Up is a triple win: food insecure families bring home more fresh produce, small farmers get an economic boost, and local economies thrive. Double Up Food Bucks are offered at our seasonal King, Kenton, Shemanski Park and Lents International Farmers Markets and at PSU Farmers Market the months of November through April.
The SNAP Ed Program increases accessibility to fresh, locally-grown foods for food insecure families in the community by providing educational information and recipe inspiration. SNAP Ed brings programs to our Kenton Farmers Market and Lents International Farmers Market locations.
Launched in 2014, Fresh Change increases access to fresh, locally-grown foods for food insecure community members who earn barter cards at Sisters of the Road. The program encourages a habit of healthy eating and connections within the broader community. We see participation at all five Portland Farmers Market locations.
Slow Food Market Scouts at Lents International Farmers Market (LIFM) provides economic support for farmers and market vendors and assures that LIFM continues to be an important community gathering place. Through this program, Slow Food Portland inspires youth to try new foods, make healthy food choices and understand their place in the food system by providing fun educational activities and $3 for kids 3–12 years old to spend at the market each week.
