WHO ARE WE?
Farmers Market Fund believes that everyone in our community should have access to healthy food.
As a charitable companion organization to Portland Farmers Market, Farmers Market Fund is dedicated to providing low-income, elderly and under-served populations throughout the region greater access to fresh, locally grown food.
Farmers Market Fund delivers on its mission by administering Fresh Exchange, a money matching program for SNAP recipients, also known as food stamps.
Since its inception in 2009, Fresh Exchange has helped put over $200,000 of fresh food into the hands of area residents in need.
Farmers Market Fund also leads a collaboration of farmers markets in the region to build funding for money matching programs region-wide, increasing the collective impact matching programs have in our communities.
