Portland Farmers Market partners with 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 Food Bucks is a triple win:
Double Up Food Bucks are offered at PSU Farmer Market year-round and the seasonal King, Kenton, Shemanski Park and Lents International farmers markets.
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 from May through August.
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.
