Spring Farm & Food Faire
April 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Central Oregon Community College (COCC) Sustainability Committee, in partnership with Central Oregon Locavore and the High Desert Food & Farm Alliance, is hosting the 3rd annual Spring Farm & Food Faire on Saturday, April 14, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Coats Campus Center in Bend. Rain or shine, this event is free and open to the public.
The Spring Farm & Food Faire is an opportunity to browse, taste, and talk about local food. Purchase early-season crops, eggs, meats, seed starts, or sign up for community-supported agriculture (CSA) and herdshare memberships from more than a dozen area farms and ranches. The faire also serves as a place to learn about farm dinners, events, and volunteer opportunities scheduled throughout the year.
“The Spring Farm and Food Faire is opportunity to meet the amazing people responsible for growing food here in Central Oregon,” said event coordinator Owen Murphy. “The faire provides an indoor space for local farmers, ranchers, and producers to show their wares and connect with community members well before regional farmers markets start up in June.”
The COCC Sustainability Committee promotes sustainability education and practices among campus students, faculty, and staff. Central Oregon Locavore is a Bend non-profit that supports local food and farms through educational programs and a year-round indoor farmer’s market. High Desert Food & Farm Alliance’s objective is to support a community-based food system with access to fresh healthy food and sustainable farmland use.
