Make a donation to the market today to help feed your community!

The Woodstock Farmers Market needs your donation today! Here are a few things that your donation may go toward:

  • $10 donation helps a SNAP family receive an additional $10 worth of fresh fruits and vegetables for one week.
  • $50 covers one week of trash service at the market
  • $75 gets us one week of porta-potty service

Please note, the Woodstock Farmers Market is currently a registered 501(c)6 non-profit. Due to this status, individual donations are not generally tax-deductible for individual donors.

We have a GoFundMe campaign for the 2021 season! Our small, local businesses who are our biggest Market boosters with their donations and support are still struggling. We won’t be able to close the gap on fundraising without your support!

You can also give by mail — make checks out to Woodstock Farmers Market and note “donation” in the memo. Our mailing address is 4207 SE Woodstock Blvd, PMB #251, Portland, OR 97206.

During the regular Market season, you can give in person — come to the information booth during the Sunday market and make your donation there.

The Woodstock Farmers Market could not be the vital community resource and ongoing success that it is without the generous support of various businesses and community organizations. We thank these sponsors for their support this season!

If you are interested in sponsoring the market, please see our current sponsorship flyer for information and a description of the sponsorship levels. If you are interested in sponsoring the market, please contact our  for more information.

Volunteer

The Woodstock Farmers Market has been connecting our community to local Oregon farmers since 2011. A huge part of our success has been the amazing group of volunteers that show up each Sunday throughout the season to lend their time and enthusiasm to one of Portland’s favorite farmer's markets. We couldn’t do this without you!

Now more than ever, we need your help keeping Woodstock Farmers Market Safe during COVID-19!

Volunteers help to make our market a safe community space for all to enjoy, and with their help, Woodstock Farmers Market has earned the reputation of being a socially distanced and enjoyable market.

Volunteer Roles

COVID-19 has changed our market in many ways, including our volunteer roles. In typical years, we have a wider range of offerings and types of shifts, but due to social distancing and our simplified market format, we only have a few types of roles to offer currently. Despite these changes, volunteer help is still greatly needed and appreciated!

Entrance and Exit Monitors, aka “floaters”, are stationed at either the entrance or the exit, and help with welcoming shoppers, answering customer questions, asking shoppers to wear masks, and doing crowd counts. The morning and afternoon floaters will also be helping with minimal set-up/takedown. The midday floater shift is a great option for those unable to do heavy lifting. All floaters will be interacting a lot with our shoppers.

Our SNAP/Info Booth volunteers handle our wireless debit machine to convert EBT SNAP transactions into tokens that can be used with our vendors. SNAP/Info booth volunteers also distribute Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB), a matching program through Farmers Market Fund that makes healthy, locally grown food more accessible to underserved Oregonians

How It All Works

  • Volunteer shifts are typically 1.5 hrs long on Sundays.
  • Keep an eye out for an email from me, Grace, on Wednesday Mornings. These emails let you know what help we’re looking for that week.
  • After receiving this email, you would respond with what shift you are interested in, and I’ll confirm if it’s still available. Then, you just show up for your shift.
  • Training is done on-site. But don’t worry, being a volunteer is not difficult, and is supposed to be kind of fun! I’m always around the market in case you need help.
  • Additional training is required for SNAP/Info Booth.
  • Volunteer shifts are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • There is no minimum or maximum number of shifts required for volunteers.
  • Face masks are required.

We would love for you to become a part of our Woodstock Farmers Market community!
