September
Eat Local Month!

Dine, Celebrate, & Delight!

Event Details

Join us for Eat Local Month, a richly diverse celebration of our local food community.

And a chance to say thank you to our local food producers, restaurants, and artisans. For their contribution to our health, making sure we have access to a variety of fresh, nutritious, and tasty foods. For being stewards and caretakers of our natural resources and vast tracks of local land, protecting them for future generations as many producers strive for. And for the positive impact they have on our local economy. Collectively, they contribute millions locally in revenue and create thousands of jobs in our region–they are a vital part of our community’s economic health.

Savor restaurant specials all month long. Experience farm tour weekend events; connect with where your food comes from, meet local farmers, and tour Whatcom Farms. Explore local markets, delight in sea-to-plate, grain-to-glass, and farm-to-plate goodness!
