Meet Your Farmer & Farmer-Chef Connect
In 2013, we began hosting Meet Your Farmer events in the spring–gatherings where local food producers can come, set up a display, bring products to sample and sell and make those important connections with customers in a fun, social setting.
Farmers share information about their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs, value-add products like jams and pickles, and their growing practices. For farmers that don’t sell through farmers markets, this can be an invaluable way to meet with customers face to face and build all-important personal connections.
Strong producer to consumer connections are a key part of a healthy local food system, and North Coast Food Web is glad that our Meet Your Farmer project is helping make those connections happen.
Keep an eye out for our yearly events, or contact us to get involved.
North Coast Farm Guide
The North Coast Farm Guide provides information about local food producers, farms, farmer's markets, and farm stands. You can find information about farms near you or plan a trip to visit a new farm stand or market!
If you’re a producer (defined as a local business that’s primary activities are related to fishing, farming, ranching or foraging) and would like to be included in our guide, please reach out to us. We would love to include you in the next edition.
The 2019 Farm & Market Guide is now available with updated information about local farms, farm stands, and markets in the Columbia Pacific Region covering Clatsop and Pacific counties in Oregon and Washington. The user-friendly format is simple to find local produce, meat, dairy, eggs and more year-round. Support your local food producers and put scrumptious food on the table in the process. You can pick up a copy of the guide at the Long Beach Peninsula Visitor's Center, 3914 Pacific Way, Long Beach, Washington Pat's Pantry Spices & More, 1133 Commercial, Astoria, Oregon. Better yet, stop by the North Coast Food Web office for Egg Day any Thursday at to pick up your free guide and some great groceries, too. If you would like a stack of Farm & Market guides for your business or market, let us know!
Small Farms Market Day
**Small Farms Market Day has been cancelled starting March 26th, 2020 during the COVID-19 outbreak to keep our community and vendors safe. If you're a vendor looking to sell products, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how we can support local food vendors at this time.**
Contact us for information on how to get your eggs or other products sold at our pop-up farm stand every Thursday from 9:00 am-4:00 pm! All food at the market is farmed, fished, foraged, or produced locally with as many local ingredients as possible. You'll find seasonal produce, eggs, meat, dairy, bread, dry goods, pickled & preserved goods and much more at Market Day. Availability will vary- it all depends on what the farmers bring in!
The Food Web is a drop-site for some local CSA boxes during Market Day. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is program that connects community members directly to farmers. You can purchase a CSA membership to receive a box of seasonal farm products, typically once a week. We have been a drop-site for Spring Up Farms CSA, Glory B CSA, and Forage and Farm. For seasonal and up-to-date information, contact farms directly.
