We invite you to join the fresh food movement.

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

With Double Up Food Bucks, 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 partnered 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!
