Thanks to everyone who has been donating to the Fresh Funds Program. Remember, it only takes $1 from every shopper to keep the program going so tell your friends!

Tomorrow marks the 15th market of the season which means we're halfway to the end! So if you've been delaying your trips to the market, now is the time to come.

-- Contest Rules --

  • Pies entered for judging must be made with berries purchased fresh. Berries do not need to come from the Hollywood Farmers Market, but there will be extra points for buying local berries. Ask at the information booth for more details on mid-week farmers markets.
  • Pie crust and filling must be prepared and baked by person submitting the pie for judging.
  • Entries must include entry form and original recipe listing all ingredients and method in order to be considered for judging.
  • Pie plates will not be returned to contestants, so we encourage contestants to submit pies in a recyclable pie plate.
  • All pies submitted for judging become the property of the Hollywood Farmers Market and may not be returned to you in time for dessert.
  • Entries will be accepted from 8am until 10am. Judging will begin promptly at 10:30am, with winners announced at 12:00 noon.

FreshFundsFresh Funds
Check here each week for updates on our fund raising efforts for the Fresh Funds Program, the Hollywood Farmers Market's SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) match program.

Fresh Funds Goal: $7,000
Amount Raised to Date: $3,353
Total Dollars Matched to SNAP Customers to Date: $3,048
Amount to Reach Goal: $3,647

Every Saturday, SNAP customers can use their EBT card to withdraw SNAP dollars to be used on market fresh produce and goods. The Hollywood Farmers Market will match up to $5 in tokens to increase SNAP customer spending power at the market and reward healthy eating.

A big thank you goes to New Seasons Market for their generous $3,000 grant that got this program started. Now it is up to us to keep it going.

This match only lasts as long as we have funds for it. Please consider donating today! Call 503-709-7403 for more information.
