Central Oregon Fill Your Pantry
November 11 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
The 8th Annual Central Oregon Fill Your Pantry is a community bulk buying farmers market created so YOU can fill up your pantry, freezer, and root cellar full of great local products for the winter. Say bye-bye to busy holiday lines and produce that has traveled farther than you during holiday vacations, and say hello to a cupboard full of local meat, grains, vegetables, ferments, and more.
The Central Oregon Fill Your Pantry will allow you to stock up on items like potatoes, onions, leeks, beets, winter squash, garlic, honey, flours, apples, pears, dried beans, krauts, baked goods, and more.
This is a bulk focused farmers market, so bring your muscles! Farmers, ranchers, orchardists, and producers will be selling large quantities of items. For example, 20lb bags of onions, 50lb bags of potatoes, 25lb ground beef boxes, etc. This is a great opportunity for vendors to move product before the harsh Central Oregon winter and a great opportunity for YOU to save money and eat well all winter long.
If you would like to use EBT/SNAP at the Fill Your Pantry event, please bring your SNAP benefits card to the Bend Farmers Market booth at the Fill Your Pantry event. The Bend Farmers Market will be exchanging SNAP benefits for tokens. These tokens can be taken to any of our vendors to use just like you would your SNAP benefits. If you would like to use your FDNP vouchers, please take these vouchers directly to the vendors. Vendors that can take FDNP include: Boundless Farmstead, The Farmer in Odell, Rainshadow Organics, and Sungrounded Farm. In addition, The Bend Farmers Market will be offering up to a $20 match for EBT/SNAP recipients. So, if you exchange $20 in EBT benefits, you will receive $40 in benefits!
