A message from our season sponsor, COUNTRY Financial
What do you think of when you head to a Portland Farmers Market? That’s easy – all the fresh food tantalizingly displayed in booth after booth by local growers.
But look beyond the marvelous mushrooms, succulent squash and tasty tomatoes. You’ll see a thriving community of vendors and shoppers that ensure local economic success, courtesy of PFM and season sponsor COUNTRY Financial.
Our partnership aims to GROW the community through its Goods, Relationships, Organizational integrity and Well-being.
The goods get delivered to the markets nearly year-round through PFM guidance to vendors. Nearly 250 growers supply the local community with the freshest food on the planet. COUNTRY fully understands the hard work behind the goods. We were founded by farmers in 1925 and continue to help growers protect their operations.
