Lane County’s premiere local food bulk buying event. Fill your pantry with the bounty of the Willamette Valley and support local farmers by eating local all winter!
Held annually in November, Willamette Farm & Food Coalition’s Fill Your Pantry (FYP) event is a unique opportunity to buy staple and storage crops in bulk directly from area farmers. Buying and storing local crops in our households is a tangible way you can support our small farms and save money on delicious local foods all winter.
New to Fill Your Pantry (FYP), or just need a refresher on how it works?
There are two ways to stock up and support local farms with this event:
(1) Pre-order online* between Oct 1st-31st wffc.localfoodmarketplace.com for the best selection. Then, pick up your products from each farm vendor during the event.
(2) Purchase products on the event day itself, whether or not you pre-ordered additional product.
*Consumers must pick up all orders on Sunday, November 10th from 1-5pm at the Lane Events Center Auditorium. Card and EBT/SNAP accepted for pre-orders and day-of sales!
For many farms, this event makes a big difference in their financial stability, as it helps them to extend and expand their late season crops. For consumers, FYP offers a chance to stock up on a wide variety of long-lasting veggies, fruits, grains, beans, frozen foods, meat, honey, and more. In short, you support your local food system AND increase your winter self-sufficiency at the same time.
Offerings vary each year, but foods you’ll typically find at FYP include:
–Storage crops: onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, and squash
–Pantry staples: oats, flour, quinoa, and other grains
–Meat: chicken, pork, beef, lamb, and duck
–Specialty foods: apple sauce, pickles, and more
All orders will be picked up on Sunday, November 10th from 1-5pm at the Lane Events Center Auditorium. Cash, credit/debit, and EBT/SNAP/food stamps accepted!
This event is put on by the Willamette Farm & Food Coalition with generous support from our sponsors: City of Eugene, Country Financial, Eugene’s Table, Hummingbird Wholesale, and Columbia Bank
