Farmer Training Program

The Come Thru Market farmer training program supports beginning farmers of color in Portland in building their farmers market readiness and success. This program is specifically designed for people of color, including immigrants and refugees. Priority will be given to Black and Indigenous candidates. 

Farmers who are currently participating in a business development program will be reviewed on a case by case basis. 

We are looking for 6-8 farmers of color who meet the following criteria:

Please note this is a market success training program, not a program to learn farming. To succeed, farmers really do need to have real world farming experience. Without solid crop planning experience, farmers will feel unsuccessful in this program.
