Previous Years Events


With all the twist and turns of 2020, the 6th annual Portland Fill Your Pantry WEEK was incredibly successful! Brought to you by Friends of Family Farmers and Slow Food Portland , the Portland Fill Your Pantry Week took place between December 5 - 13 at four different winter farmers markets across the Portland area – Hollywood, Hillsdale, Lloyd, and Montavilla. Twenty-four local farmers and ranchers participated in the online pre-order session, plus Come Thru Market featured BIPOC farm and food product vendors at three of the markets. A combined $65,000 in products during online pre-orders were sold to over 390 customers.


The 5th Annual Portland Fill Your Pantry and Winter Vegetable Sagra was a fantastic success! On Sunday, December 8, 2019, 31 local, socially-responsible farmers had solid sales at an otherwise-slow time of year. Chefs gave tasty samples of dishes made with many of the winter vegetables that were being sold, cheerful volunteers kept the coffee hot and helped load heavy carts, and over 1,000 shoppers have now filled their pantries with fresh, pesticide-free, vegetables, meats, nuts and more grown right here in the Pacific Northwest. Approximately $85,000 dollars were circulated in our local economy at that one day event. Check out event pictures here. Photo: Shawn Linehan.


On December 9, 2018, the 4th annual Portland Fill Your Pantry bulk buying event was held on a cold, blustery day under cover outside at Faubion Elementary School. Despite harsh weather, hundreds of shoppers came out and purchased over $62,000 in bulk vegetables, fruit, beans, pasture-raised meats, canned goods, and other product from the 21 participating farms and ranches!


Friends of Family Farmers’ 3rd Annual Portland Fill Your Pantry was held on December 3, 2017 at The Redd on Salmon Street. Hundreds of supporters attended and we collectively helped generate over $60,000 in sales that went directly into the pockets of 24 local farms & ranches! Check out event pictures here.
