Find Your Farmer at the
3rd Annual CSA Share Fair!
Saturday, March 11
9:00 AM – 2:00 PM | Free admission
Farmer Matchmaking, Workshops, Kids’ Activities, Fresh Produce, and Local Food & Drink Vendors
Meet and talk directly to local farmers who grow our food! More than 40 local farmers, ranchers, and fishers will showcase CSA options, including vegetables, fruits, pastured meats, wild fish, eggs, flowers, honey, and more.
Free street parking; on-site bike parking; TriMet buses #12, #66, #75, #77 and the Red, Green, and Blue MAX lines stop near the market.
Participating CSA Share Fair farms accept cash, credit, debit, and SNAP. This year, through a new SNAP match program, Double Up Food Bucks, some CSA members can receive $200 toward a CSA share.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a growing movement that connects eaters and farmers. This is a win-win: You get healthy, fresh, farm-direct food every week, and your farmer gets freedom and security. Other benefits of CSA shares include getting to know your farmer, eating more vegetables, supporting a local business, connecting with your food, and investing in low impact farming practices that protect our drinking water, soils, and wildlife habitat.
Participating farms include Portland’s pioneering CSA farms (going strong for more than 20 years!), third generation family farmers, local flower growers, sustainable meat producers, wild salmon fishers, and non-profits that provide community services, such as teaching kids about growing food and training new immigrant farmers.
