Oregonians are building the James Beard Public Market – a public space to showcase the delicious productivity and incredible abundance of Northwest farms, forests, rivers, oceans, vineyards and breweries.
You can join our family of enthusiastic early supporters. Make a tax-deductible donation today and be First to Market! Whether as farmer, shopper, chef, teacher, tourist or student there'll be great things for all at the market!
As a First to Market supporter, your early investment will literally seed the market, supporting the community engagement now needed to make this a strong and sustainable public effort. You can help increase access to fresh, healthy food, and you can stimulate our region’s economy, supporting local businesses and creating job opportunities.
If we reach our goal by Oct. 1, all donors will be invited to the James Beard Public Market Headquarters for a donor appreciation extravaganza.
We also have some really amazing prizes you can win by donating. Stay tuned for details.
