Get A Taste of this Place
Can you feel it? Fall is in the air, some (much needed) rain is finally forecasted, and many of us are starting to think about our winter stores of food. Whether you’ve been canning, dehydrating, and freezing all summer, or you’re just getting started – we hope that you’re able to stock up on locally grown foods to nourish you throughout the winter.
Read on for some ways to find local foods in Central Oregon, and #GetATasteOfThisPlace !
Central Oregon Fill Your Pantry – November 13!
Fill Your Pantry is a community bulk buying event created so you can fill up your pantry, freezer, and root cellar full of great local products for the winter. This is a bulk buying event, so bring your muscles! Farmers, ranchers, orchardists, and producers will only be selling large quantities of items. For example, 20lb bags of onions, 50lb bags of potatoes, half wheels of cheese, 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.
When: November 13, 2021
Where: Redmond Fairgrounds
Resources provided: Shopping assistance, welcome booth, SNAP/EBT accepted.
