Farm Market Promotion Program

FMPPThe United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) awarded NeighborWorks Umpqua a two-year grant to promote five farm markets in Douglas County.  These include Canyonville, Lookingglass, Old Town, Sutherlin and Umpqua Valley Farmers Markets.

Our goal is to create a thriving network of Farmers’ Markets in the Umpqua Valley that provide an abundance of fresh local foods to consumers and businesses while supporting our local agricultural industry. Goals will be accomplished through technical assistance, coordinated marketing/branding strategies and integrating community resources. Besides uniting the 5 markets, the main goal of the program is to increase public awareness of the offerings of the farmers markets. Through an intensive branding/marketing campaign, consumers will become aware of what produce is available, when and where they can access it and be educated as to the many health and economic benefits of buying local produce.
