Support the Market

Dear Neighbor,
The Stevenson Farmers’ Market is a seasonal market focusing on supplying regionally-grown produce and farm products sold by the farmer. Farmers markets provide a unique opportunity for the consumer to meet the grower who raised the food they eat. Locally grown food is a sustainable approach to agriculture that uses fewer resources to bring the highest quality, freshest food to your table, and provides food security for the community.

Launched in 2007, the Stevenson Farmers’ Market is located in downtown Stevenson in front of the courthouse lawn. Our mission is to provide healthy, fresh foods and farm products to Skamania County and to our visitors.

In 2017 The Stevenson Farmers’ Market provided Children with $830 of free veggies with our new Power of Produce program (POP) where children get a $2 token to spend on vegetables each visit and participate in Veggie related activities.

Our market also gave $549 in additional food to community members Doubling the spending power of both WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) vouchers. In the past 3 years $2,211 of free food has been given to community members made possible by Sponsorships.

Farmers markets are good for communities. They bring people together and increase the social health and wealth of communities.  Studies show that farmers’ markets improve customers’ sense of belonging and attachment to the neighborhood, and increase sales in surrounding businesses. Not to mention the healthy, tasty food that customers buy each week at the market.

The Stevenson Farmers’ Market is seeking sponsors for the 2018 season. Please consider helping us make our eleventh year our best yet. See you at the market!

Sincerely,
Steering Committee,
Stevenson Farmers’ Market
