We make healthy, locally grown food accessible to under-served Oregonians.
What We Do
Farmers Market Fund’s Double Up Food Bucks program matches SNAP (previously food stamp) dollar-for-dollar at 60+ farmers markets across Oregon, so families can bring home twice as many fruits and veggies. Double Up is a triple win: low-income families bring home more farm-fresh produce, small farmers get an economic boost, and local economies thrive.
Our work comes from the core belief that no person should have to choose between being hungry and being healthy.
Building Community Among Farmers Markets
We support a statewide community of practice among markets participating in DUFB, presenting quarterly webinars that provide in-depth training on topics including outreach, program implementation, fundraising, and vendor training. This community offers opportunities for sharing best practices and peer learning, working in close partnership with the Oregon Farmers Markets Association.
Listening and Learning
Shoppers, farmers market managers, and farmers market vendors are at the heart of Double Up. We are committed to centering the voices of those with the lived experience of using the program, so that we can make it even better and more impactful.
