Farmers Market

Farmers Market Basket of Hope & Happiness

March is coming in like a lion, and hopefully going out like a lamb. The Farmers Market Staff and myself have been whipping up all kinds of surprises for everyone. Only through Grants and Market sponsorships are these programs possible. Thank you Jennie’s Shoes, South Coast Family Dentistry, Crystal Tie-Dye, and Ziply Fiber for being community partners and sponsors. We have many different types and levels of sponsorship available this season. If you would like to join the CBDA Coos Bay Farmers Market sponsorship family, please email me at coosbayfarmersmarket@gmail.com so we can find the perfect fit. Here is a little sneak peek at just a few of the upcoming programs. Some are improved favorites and some are shiny and new.

Did you know you can use your EBT/SNAP card at the CBDA Coos Bay Farmers Market? Simply go to the informational booth, we run your card for whatever amount you would like. Once the transaction is approved, we give you tokens to use in the market to purchase items from the vendors just like you would at the grocery store. The tokens never expire but are only good at the CBDA Coos Bay Farmers Market. Last season our market helped 1128 families for a total of $56,073 given to customers and redeemed by our vendors.

The Double Up Food Bucks program is back as well this season. We will be able to match the first $20 you use on your SNAP/EBT card each week with $20 in fruit and vegetable vouchers for the entire season May – October. Among the DUFB, we will also have the CBDA Food Accessibility program that will further help the low-income population. It will run similar to DUFB, but the vouchers will only be good for things like milk, eggs, bread, honey, and more.

For more information about the programs or the Farmers Market email Market Manager Melissa Hasart at coosbayfarmersmarket@gmail.com
