Willamette Farm and Food Coalition (WFFC) connects consumers to local farmers, ranchers, and processors and the delicious foods they produce from the Willamette Valley’s fertile soils. We believe in the power of local food to create a strong, healthy, and resilient community. WFFC is a nonprofit organization based in Eugene, Oregon and serves all of Lane County. We invite you to join the fresh food movement.

Fill Your Pantry

Our 7th Annual Fill Your Pantry event is coming up! This one-day community event is a unique opportunity to buy local food in quantities that will help you eat local throughout winter.

Pre-ordering will begin in mid-October. Check back or subscribe to our newsletter for the latest info on products, vendors, and pre-ordering.

For some farms, this event makes a big difference in their financial stability as it helps them extend and expand their late season crops. For consumers, Fill Your Pantry offers a chance to stock up on a wide variety of long-lasting veggies, fruits, grains, beans, frozen foods, meat, honey, and more. Support your local food system AND increase your winter self-sufficiency at the same time!

Double Up Food Bucks

Double Up Food Bucks is in full swing at farmers markets in Lane County. With Double Up, shoppers using SNAP (or food stamp) benefits receive “food bucks” valued at $10 per market day. Food bucks can be used to purchase fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods. WFFC is proud to partner with four markets this season to offer Double Up to low-income community members.

To “double up,” go to a participating farmers market, swipe your Oregon Trail Card, match up to $10 with food bucks, and shop for fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, beans, cut herbs, nuts, and edible plant starts. It’s that easy!

Double Up is a partnership among local farmers markets, Farmers Market Fund, and WFFC and is made possible by generous support from local funders.

Community support is essential to keep the Double Up Food Bucks program going. Help expand access to locally grown produce by donating today. Thank you!
