Our missions is to create and sustain a not-for-profit enterprise that provides fresh local farm and other products in the Southwest Portland Community, providing a viable market for local farmers, and enhancing the business, nutritional, and community health of Southwest Portland.
The Hillsdale Farmers' Market is a year-round market hosting over 50 local farmers and food artisans from Oregon and Southwest Washington. In addition to providing a space for customers to connect with vendors of sustainable foods, we offer a number of programs to support our community.
DUFB Program: Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) is our SNAP Match program for our SNAP customers. ("SNAP" stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps.) Each market day, eligible participants can receive up to $10 in matching funds when they purchase SNAP tokens to spend at the market. The DUFB voucher is valid for the purchase of buy fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh or dried beans, fresh herbs, vegetable & herb starts, and nuts and seeds. DUFB is an incentive for SNAP customers to purchase the healthiest items available at the farmers market while empowering them to spend their SNAP funds locally. We are able to to provide this incentive thanks to the generosity of following businesses and organizations below.
POP Program: Power of Produce (POP) is a nation-wide farmers’ market-based kids program that aims to teach children about produce, our local food system, and healthy food preparation. After completing the weekly activity, kids receive a POP Buck worth $2 to spend on a produce item of their choice at the market.
