Market Programs

Farmers market delivered to you

In 2018, the OHSU Farmers Market started using a local business called Tap-In to deliver farmers market goods and lunch created by the OHSU catering department to a variety of locations around the hill. We hope to continue this option in June 2019!

For more information, download the Tap-In App (currently only available for iOS devices).

Durable utensil program

The OHSU Farmers Market is on board with the trend in reducing single waste plastics from our landfills.

We provide 2 types of utensils at the market for all vendors to use.

To go: If you are getting lunch and leaving, please consider using the green plastic utensils, made from 100% recycled plastic. Since most of the energy footprint comes from kind of material used to make a product, we are reducing that footprint tremendously by using recycled materials. Please consider bringing your fork back the next week or keeping it and reusing it in your office! Forks can be deposited in the RED bins at each waste station. 

If you are staying at the market to eat lunch, please use a metal fork. These can also go into the RED bins at the waste stations and will be sanitized and reused. 

Community supported agriculture

What is community supported agriculture or a CSA?

A CSA is a model of farming that involves members buying shares at the beginning of each growing season. Each member pays in advance for a box of produce delivered to the drop site weekly for approximately 17-21 weeks, no-middle-person, fresh from the farm, picked within 24-48 hours! This model of farming is wonderful for the farmers as it provides a known source of funds for the season as well as expected amount to harvest. CSA members enjoy fresh produce and the opportunity to get to know their local farmer, learn about small scale organic production systems and invest in the local economy. 

Full shares delivered weekly and partial shares delivered every other week will be available in spring.  

This season, the OHSU community, including employees, students & visitors, have the opportunity to subscribe to Sun Gold Farms' CSA and have the produce dropped at your choice of 4 locations:

  • OHSU Farmers Market, Marquam Hill
  • Casey Eye Institute, Marquam Hill
  • Center For Health and Healing - Bike Valet Station at the South Waterfront
  • Shriners Children's Hospital
