In Portland, Big Grocery dominates our food economy while funding political campaigns of those who hyper — police communities of color and the poor and also drive gentrification. This greed leaves thousands displaced and struggling without access to healthy food or resources to get it. Fight back with us by attending this FREE farmers market. Gardeners are needed to donate fresh produce so that we can make it available to families in need and bring it directly to high density areas and to people impacted by displacement. Please bring homegrown produce between 10-12 to the pavilion at Montevilla park. Growers can also pick a few items from the farm trade table if they donate their best to the Free Farmer's Market. No money allowed. This is how we subvert the Big Grocery Big Money Big Politics game and take action to feed our friends and community.

We will also have music, speakers, poets, and resources for empowerment and community building thoughout the day.

Thanks to Milenio Latino and Pueblo Unido for awesome teamwork on this project.
