Fill Your Pantry
Fill Your Pantry is a unique opportunity to buy staple and storage crops in bulk directly from area farmers. Buying and storing local crops in our households is a tangible way you can support our small farms and ensure that you have delicious to eat local all winter.
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.
Offerings vary each year, but foods you’ll typically find at Fill Your Pantry include:
- Storage crops: onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, and squash
- Pantry staples: oats, flour, quinoa, and other grains
- Meat: chicken, pork, beef, lamb, and duck
- Specialty foods: apple sauce, pickles, and more
