Corvallis-Albany Farmers' Markets
Serving Recovers communities:
The Albany Farmers' Market, founded in 1978, is perhaps the oldest open air continuously operated farmers' market in Oregon. Since 1998, it has been part of Corvallis-Albany Farmers' Markets.
Corvallis-Albany Farmers’ Markets is a farmer-led nonprofit that operates outdoor farmers’ markets in Corvallis and Albany and otherwise promotes and assists farm direct marketers whose farms are located in six counties: Benton, Linn, Lincoln, Lane, Marion and Polk. Our membership is made of up 140 small family-scale farms.
The mission of the Corvallis-Albany Farmers’ Markets is to provide highly visible centralized locations in Corvallis and Albany for mid-Willamette Valley and Coast Range agricultural producers and gardeners to market their high quality agricultural products directly to consumers.
Farm direct marketing is a direct link between consumers and producers that prohibits resale and promotes transparency and traceability. CAFM has a longtime commitment to enhancing access to high quality, local food among ALL members of our community. We are deeply engaged in nutrition programs (SNAP, SNAP matching programs, gleaning, Farm Direct Nutrition Program) that promote food justice and equity.
