The Aloha Community Farmers’ Market Story & Mission:

 

The Aloha Community Farmers' Market (ACFM) began in May 2016 and serves as a summer (May-September) market for the unincorporated areas of Aloha, Reedville, and beyond. Our market was founded based on the 2014 Aloha Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan that indicated a strong desire for a local farmers market.

 

ACFM is also a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to strengthen our local food system, economic vitality, and community identity. Our market aims to achieve its mission by providing access to fresh, local food sold directly from regional farmers; educating our community about the importance of good nutrition and environmental health; supporting local businesses and business owners by hosting them at our 2nd Thursday Makers' Markets and community booths; and hosting cultural events and activities to celebrate our community’s diverse population.

 

ACFM is managed by Market Manager Kody Harris, an all-volunteer Board of Directors, and volunteers who believe in the importance of our market’s goals. The 2018 season begins on Thursday, May 3rd and goes until Thursday, September 27th. We will be in a brand NEW LOCATION in front of the Bales Farmington Market Place at SW Farmington & SW Kinnaman Roads in Aloha (directly across from Mountain View Middle School). We hope to see you there!

ACFM Matches SNAP Benefits!

Thanks to a donation from the local Aloha Food Brigade, ACFM is able to match Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits! The primary goal of our market is to increase local food access to our community, and this is one of the most direct ways we can help provide fresh, local food to those who may not usually be able to afford it.

What this means: If you purchase $5 in EBT tokens with your SNAP/Oregon Trail Card, we will match you with an additional $5 dollars so that you have $10 to spend at the market!

Next time you attend our market, go to the Market Booth at the market entrance to get your tokens and take advantage of this awesome opportunity.

Please note: All Federal SNAP rules and regulations apply, the match is limited, and additional restrictions apply. See market staff at the Market Booth for more information.
