Rocky Butte Farmers Market is a nonprofit providing NE Portland, Oregon’s underserved Madison South, Roseway, and Sumner neighborhood residents with access to affordable, seasonal, and locally grown foods and artisan products. We aim to lower barriers to market participation for beginning and under-represented vendors, and to strengthen connections within our diverse community.
Our market is run by volunteers and funded by sponsors and community donors. We use donated funds to cover operational costs, like purchasing supplies and equipment for market set-up, and securing services necessary for a great market experience. We are also committed to following all best-practice COVID safety measures, which means the additional cost of more cleaning supplies, safety-related signage, and tools to ensure appropriate social distance spacing for vendors and customers.
While we are seeking business sponsorships, we are aware that this pandemic has taken a huge toll on many of our neighborhood local businesses, making it impossible for them to support the market with a financial contribution this year.
If you are able, please consider making a donation to Rocky Butte Farmers Market 2021 Season. With your support, we will be able to provide a fresh, fun, and friendly market for our neighborhood.
