Shop 4% Friday on April 23rd to Support Mount Vernon Farmer’s Market

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! This year Skagit Valley Food Co-op has partnered with Skagit Community Foundation to make 4% Friday twice as nice with Double Donation Days! Skagit Community Foundation will be matching all of our 4% Friday giving for 2021.

Now, when you shop 4% Friday Community Shopping Days, your purchase will have twice the impact: on Friday, April 23rd, we’re donating 4% of sales to Mount Vernon Farmer’s Market, and the Skagit Community Foundation will match our total to double the donation!

The mission of the Mount Vernon Farmers Market is to provide the citizens of Skagit County fresh, locally grown produce and handcrafted items, and support community agriculture in a friendly, informative atmosphere.

How will your shopping trip help Mount Vernon Farmer’s Market?

At the market, one of the main goals is food access. 4% Friday funds will help support the market’s Skagit PICKs program, where they provide free fruits and vegetables to low-income families with educational tools from their partner, Skagit Pediatrics.
