2023 Summer Market Season at Oregon City Farmer’s Market Saturdays 9am-2pm and Milwaukie Farmer’s Market Sundays 9:30am-2pm
Market Share is a take on CSA (community supported agriculture) programs. Members make a financial commitment to Sun Love Farm, but instead of getting boxes each week with the farmer’s pick of produce, members come to the Oregon City Farmer’s market (year round) or the Milwaukie Farmer’s Market (May-October) to pick out their own produce.
As a veggie farmer, who primarily has food to sell during May-October, when people sign up and pay for the Market Share program in the winter and early spring, it gives the farm the off season income to buy the necessary things to get the season started, including seeds, potting soil, and fertilizer.
This is ideal for people who want to eat seasonally and local, but prefer to choose the food that they want each week. Also, there is no worry if you need to be out of town for a week- your account never expires.
Sun Love Farm is a certified-naturally grown farm in Oregon City that grows a large diversity of seasonal vegetables. Sun Love’s produce is grown with deep care and respect for the earth. While not organic certified, the produce is grown in a “better than organic” way. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used, we grow open-pollinated varietals, annual cover crops are planted to keep the soil thriving, flowers are planted throughout the fields to encourage beneficial insects, and of course, love is given to every plant.

We are working to make sure that our produce is available to anyone who wants to eat fresh and nutritious food, regardless of income.
One way we can do that is through accepting SNAP for CSA and Market Shares, and the Double Up Food Bucks Program.
Another way is through our scholarship fund. We have a limited amount of funds available to reduce the cost of CSA and Market Share for those who need it. Please get in touch if you think that you would qualify, or if you would like to donate to the fund.
