Covid-19 Information for Vendors

Vendors, farmers, and crafters--you are the heart of our market! Please know that we are working to support you at this time. Currently, farmers markets in Oregon are considered essential services and as such, are allowed to stay open as long as they are able to operate safely and enforce social distancing measures. We are working with the Oregon Farmers Market Association to understand how we could apply best practices to protect health and safety at our market. Similar to grocery stores, we will need to make adjustments to comply with state, CDC and OHA guidelines. 

 

In the coming weeks we will be reaching out to our vendors and neighboring markets, and adjusting our plans to ensure the safety of our vendors and our community. We still hope to open the market on June 3. You can preview the Oregon Farmers Market Association guidelines here:

Please know that these are subject to change and may be adjusted for our circumstances. Check back often for updates, or get in touch with us directly by emailing bakercityfarmersmarketor@gmail.com

Double Up Food Bucks Vendor Info

Baker City Farmers Market is proud to be a part of the Double Up Food Bucks Program. The Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) program supports local growers and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants by providing a match that increases fresh produce purchasing. The DUFB program recently received an investment of $1.5 million from the state of Oregon to make the program more accessible. This program is designed to benefit farmers and families by increasing purchases and access to local, healthy food in our community. To learn more, see the DUFB Vendor FAQs.

SNAP card users can double their benefits up to $10 per market day and receive Double Up Food Bucks to be used only for fruits and vegetables that meet the following criteria:

• GOOD FOR: any variety of fresh, dried, or frozen whole or cut fruits and vegetables without added sugars, fats, oils, or salt. Includes mushrooms, fresh herbs, nuts, dried beans, and edible plant starts. 

• NOT GOOD FOR: grains, meat, eggs, cheese, baked goods, prepared foods, fermented foods, salsa, pickles, jams, jellies, honey, cider, juice, tea, or other foods that do not fit into the above guidelines; nonfood items.

If you sell any of the items under the "GOOD FOR" list above, you are eligible to participate! Please read the Eligible Produce Vendor Letter and FAQs below, then sign the Acknowledgement Form and mail it to us or turn it in to the Market Manager at the market. If you are not eligible, you may still receive questions from customers at the market, so please take a moment to read the Non-Eligible Produce Vendor Letter. Thank you for helping us increase our community's access to local, healthy food!
