About this Market

Shemanski Park Farmers Market is a popular shopping destination for downtown residents, office workers, tourists, and local chefs. Founded in 1998, this gem of a market features over 30 vendor booths filled with farm-fresh and locally-made food under a lush green canopy of trees.

Accepted Currencies at the Market

  • Cash: Cash is accepted and typically the preferred payment method of vendors.
  • Credit/Debit Cards: Many of our vendors take credit or debits cards. Just look for signs or ask vendors before purchasing.
  • Market Tokens
    • Shoppers can purchase $5 tokens at the Market Information Booth using a credit/debit card or check. These tokens can be used to purchase all market items and should be used like a $5 bill. Change is provided.

    • A $20 purchase minimum and a $4 convenience fee are assessed for token purchases.
  • SNAP Benefits
    SNAP/Oregon Trail EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) cards are accepted at all of our markets.
    To use your card, visit the market information booth, where you will receive $1 red wooden tokens, which may be spent directly at vendor booths.

  • Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB)
    Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) is a program that matches SNAP benefits spent at all of our markets. Shemanski Park Farmers Market matches up to $20 per day at each market. Be sure to use them before they expire on December 31!
  • Oregon Farm Direct Nutrition Program
    The Oregon Farm Direct Nutrition Program (FDNP) is a benefit offered to WIC families and eligible seniors. FDNP checks are issued in specific denominations, which may differ from year to year.

    • They can be spent directly with farmers for fresh vegetables, fruit, and cut herbs.
    • The checks are valid from June 1 through November 30, and no change can be given.
    • FDNP vouchers are accepted by vendors that sell eligible produce. To find out which vendors participate in this program, look for signs displayed in their booths, or ask someone at our market information booth.
