About Fill Your Pantry
Fill Your Pantry is an annual bulk purchasing event organized by various local food system non-profits around Oregon. It is a one-day community bulk-buying event focused on shoppers truly stocking their pantries for the winter with items from local farms such as storage vegetables, fruit, beans, pasture-raised meats, grains, canned goods, and other products. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase large quantities of staple and storage crops at great prices directly from local farmers at a time of the year when many farmers can really use the extra sales. Friends of Family Farmers has organized Fill Your Pantry events in Portland since 2015. Farmers and ranchers are on the front lines feeling the effects of climate chaos, and they are also best poised to do something about it. Fill Your Pantry is one of the many solutions we offer to help promote regenerative agriculture, support local producers and keep money in our local economy.
About Winter Vegetable Sagra
Happening alongside Fill Your Pantry is the Winter Vegetable Sagra (festival), organized by the Eat Winter Vegetables project and the Culinary Breeding Network. The Winter Vegetable Sagra provides event attendees an opportunity to learn about, celebrate, and taste the many different varieties of winter vegetables being grown by Oregon farmers through tastings, cooking demonstrations and more.
