Meet your Farmer CSA Fair

Meet local farmers. Learn about local food boxes (CSAs). Enjoy live music and a pint.

Good, local eats in one convenient weekly box.

Join Sustainable Connections for the 5th Annual Meet Your Farmer CSA Fair, where Bellingham & Whatcom County residents can learn about getting farm-fresh, healthy food in one convenient weekly box.

With meal kits and online delivery on the rise, a CSA (community-supported agriculture) share allows customers to enjoy the benefits of convenience and eating well, while supporting local farms. CSA programs also let you skip the middle man and forgo busy box stores, all the while ditching plastic packaging and creating less waste with food that was grown minutes from your dining room table.

Join us Saturday, March 28 at Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro, for a chance to meet local farms, learn about their growing practices, and choose a CSA program that fits your lifestyle and budget.

Enjoy music from Naomi Botkin, a Seattle songbird and soul singer. Her warm, charming vocals explore vulnerable themes an sultry melodies in many languages.

Did you know?

With community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs, we have access to the cleanest, healthiest, freshest food, sourced directly from the farm, and at an affordable price.

30%. The amount you save, on average, from buying a community-supported agriculture share vs. buying the same organic produce at any other Whatcom grocer.

$25–40. The average cost of a weekly box — packed full of quality food that’s a great value AND supports local farmers.

The Meet Your Farmer CSA Fair is co-hosted by Tilth Alliance. Tilth Alliance teaches people of all ages and backgrounds how to grow, cook, and eat nutritious food in ways that regenerate healthy ecosystems. They offer hands-on learning experiences and provide training and resources to Washington State farmers.

The Meet Your Farmer CSA Fair is an Eat Local First event, helping to bring more food that’s grown here in Whatcom, Skagit, San Juan, and Island Counties to our plates!
