WHO ARE WE?


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.

WHAT IS GIVE!GUIDE?


WHAT IS GIVE!GUIDE?


Give!Guide is Willamette Week’s annual program to encourage holiday giving to local nonprofits.


This year through Give!Guide you can make one gift that will benefit farmers market money matching programs for low income neighbors in throughout the greater Portland area.


Markets all the way from Oregon City to NE Portland will benefit from your generous gift. Farmers Market Fund will distribute donations fairly among the markets so all will get a share to share.


We invite you to give the gift of healthy local food to all Portlanders this holiday season through a Give!Guide donation.
