Seasonal Abundance

Thank you!

Another great season!

What constitutes the Montavilla Farmers Market if it isn’t the loyal customers who frequent our fantastic vendors week after week? Because of your support this season, we continued to provide a vibrant marketplace where our diverse community has access to high quality, local, healthy food.
Thank you!

Did you know that the market is a nonprofit? Due to donations this year, in August we were able to double our SNAP match at the market from $5 to $10. This showed an enormous impact in making local food more accessible to those who need it most. The SNAP match was so successful, in fact, that we doubled it for the rest of the season. Increasing food access is one of our primary missions. This project has great importance for us and we’d love to be able to double the match next year as well.

You’ve supported our remarkable vendors this season—this fall you have an opportunity to support the market. Make a gift directly to the Montavilla Farmers Market on our website, or support all of Portland’s farmers markets in this year’s Willamette Week Give!Guide that kicks off next week!

We look forward to seeing you at the special Thanksgiving market on Sunday, November 23, and then for our three winter stock-up markets on December 21, January 11, and February 8.

Since 1942 the Ingram family has pursued it’s destiny in providing stewardship for one of the most beautiful 35 acre parcels of Land in the Willamette Valley.  To this day they take great pride in managing the land in an environmentally friendly, “Green” tradition that began with Marvin Ingram.

Marvin moved the family to their Oregon City amazing location in the early 1940’s because of the view to the West toward Butteville where he was born and raised.  Today the 3rd and 4th generations of his family have followed in Grandpa Marvin’s foot steps and desire to make our living from the care and fruits of this land.

King’s Raven Winery produces premium Willamette Valley wines for your pleasure and enjoyment. We are so proud to have them at our market, and we hope that you get the chance to enjoy their wines as much as we do.
