BPS makes it easy to find your farmer

Updated map tools on the BPS website make it easy to find local farmers, ranchers, and fisherman, featuring more than 50 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms and more than two dozen neighborhood farmers markets that serve up the best of Oregon’s bounty.

CSA Farms

CSA farms sell shares—or memberships—to households who typically receive weekly boxes of seasonal vegetables delivered to their neighborhood. Many CSAs also provide a wide variety of additional food, including fruit, eggs, dairy, fish, meat and poultry. And some farms deliver all year or directly to your house.

CSA shareholders help farmers cover their up-front operating and farmers get a fair price for their labors by selling directly to consumers. In exchange, CSA members get the convenience of fresh food delivered to their neighborhood and try new produce varieties that are grown for our region. CSA participants directly support the local economy, help protect farmland, and connect with local farms and farmers.

Farmers markets

If you’d rather pick your own produce, Portland boasts a strong web of farmers markets that can be found all over town, every day of the week. And farmers markets are more than peas and cukes. You can talk to the folks who produce your food, visit with your neighbors, taste delicious prepared food, and learn culinary skills at cooking demonstrations.

Don’t forget that almost all the markets accept SNAP benefits and many have matching-dollar programs.
