ONline farmers market
The North Coast Online Farmers Market is a year round, local food market supporting small farmers and food makers within 100 miles of Astoria, Oregon. The market aims to increase local food accessibility for low-income community members through accepting SNAP (formally food stamps) and FDNP payments; offering a 50% discount on fresh produce purchased with SNAP; and a home delivery service with no fee for low-income customers. The Market currently supports 42 local food vendors and 500+ customers annually.
