About Farmers Market Fund
Farmers Market Fund (FMF) makes healthy, locally grown food accessible to underserved Oregonians.
Founded in 2009 by a group of community activists, FMF was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2012. FMF’s primary focus is Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB), a program that doubles Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits at farmers markets across Oregon, allowing shoppers to get twice as many fruits and vegetables. DUFB helps families bring home more fruits and vegetables, gives small farmers an economic boost, and keeps more food dollars in the local economy. Since its inception, FMF has distributed more than $600,000 in Double Up Food Bucks to shoppers. FMF also convenes and leads a coalition of farmers markets for the purpose of sharing best practices and fundraising as related to nutrition incentive programs for low income market shoppers.
Portland Farmers Market (PFM) founded FMF in 2012 as their charitable partner organization. The two parties have a written agreement describing the administrative and program services provided by PFM to FMF. PFM shares office space with FMF in NE Portland.
The FMF office and staff of two is co-located with Portland Farmers Market. This small team works closely with each other, occasionally with PFM staff and with staff from partner organizations also working to implement DUFB at various outlets.
In June 2019, the Oregon legislature appropriated $1.5 million for the expansion of the Oregon Double Up Food Bucks program through 2021. The FMF Program Coordinator will support that expansion, working with 50+ farmers markets across the state to provide contracts, track data and conduct program evaluation. The Program Coordinator will also provide general support to FMF’s operations, including outreach and social media, donor relations, giving campaigns, and program evaluation. These tasks are seasonal/sequential and not required to be done simultaneously.
