Food Hero

Connecting children with fresh, locally grown food

Do you have little ones? Stop by the Farmer's Market Information Booth to participate in our Food Hero program. We frequently offer fun activities like food tastings, crafts and our popular bike smoothie maker. We also give out vouchers worth $2 for children to spend on fruits and veggies.

Double Up Bucks

Get more fruits and vegetables when you spend your OregonTrail Card SNAP dollars at participating farmers markets. For example, if you spend $10 of your SNAP dollars at the market, we will give you another $10 to buy more locally grown fruits and vegetables (dependent on fund availability).
