Your support has a direct impact on our community! The Woodstock Farmers Market has been connecting our community to local Oregon farmers for eight seasons and counting. A central commitment of our market is to provide quality, fresh food for all of our neighbors, regardless of income level.

We have been offering a SNAP Matching incentive to our SNAP shoppers since the 2012 season. This helps an average of 35 families a week use the additional spending power to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. Not only does it make an impact in the shoppers’ ability to purchase healthy foods for their families, but those funds go directly back to our small, local farms, many of which are women-owned.  By matching SNAP dollars at the Woodstock Farmers Market, we effectively and efficiently reach households that are in need, a majority of which have children.

We are looking for donations from our friends and neighbors to help us continue supporting SNAP recipients through our SNAP Matching program. Our SNAP customers are part of our community and it is a big part of our mission to serve them.

“Shopping at this market with SNAP Matching funds is vital. Otherwise I could not afford to eat healthfully, which is important as I have medical concerns. The market is a weekly habit now thanks to the matching grant.”—WFM SNAP Shopper
 
“The price of food has gone up and food stamps have gone down – most of us run out by mid-month. This SNAP Matching program is a lifeline!”
—WFM SNAP Shopper

“There is no stigma when buying quality food at a beautiful farmers market. I am so grateful for this opportunity.”—WFM SNAP Shopper
