The Portland Area CSA Coalition (PACSAC) connects consumers and farmers through Community Supported Agriculture. We help people find the right farm for their family, and we help farmers create sustainable, thriving businesses. We believe a vibrant, environmentally sound local food system is created by building relationships between farmers and households through healthy, accessible, local food.

VegFest is this weekend, September 27 and 28, 10 – 6, and the Portland Area CSA Coalition will be there with information about Community Supported Agriculture. Come join us!

VegFest educates about and celebrates a plant-based lifestyle. At VegFest you’ll find hundreds of free food samples (yum!), kids’ activities, film screenings, demonstrations by chefs from around the nation, a fitness area, speakers and more. This event is fun, celebratory and open to all – vegan and non-vegan alike. The event is $8 for adults (look for a $1 off coupon on the Northwest Veg website), children 12 & under are free, and there are discounts for seniors and students. You can also read an interview about VegFest here.

The Portland Area CSA Coalition will be there both days. Love Farm Organics, Our Table, Able Farms, and Zenger Farm have donated vegetables to give away at the event. Stop by, say hi, fill out a raffle form, and you might go home with delicious vegetables. See you there!
