Eat Local First During Seattle Restaurant Week!

SEATTLE RESTAURANT WEEK IS HERE, and we’re inviting all Seattle foodies to eat local first as they explore our city’s diverse and inventive culinary communities. From April 14 – 27, over 200 participating restaurants will offer special curated menus — at varying price points of $20, $35, $50, and $65 — that highlight their best or most exemplary dishes. For a full listing of all participating restaurants, head to

There’s many aspects of Pacific Northwest cuisine that set apart our award-winning restaurant scenes, but one gem among them all is our farm-to-table fare. After all, this bustling metropolis is surrounded by abundant seas, farmland, and ranches, all stewarded by people who care deeply about nourishing their communities. Restaurants that source local ingredients not only have the freshest dishes but support our local food economies and have a much smaller carbon footprint than transporting food from other parts of the country.

How can we make the most of locally grown ingredients and our love of restaurants?

That’s where the Washington Food and Farm Finder comes in!

This tool, created by the Eat Local First Collaborative, is Washington’s trusted source for finding local farms and identifying the restaurants, markets, and food businesses that purchase from local food producers. You can check out the interactive map on the official WA Food and Farm Finder — in addition to looking up restaurants that source locally, you can find farmstands, farmers markets, sign up for CSA boxes, and more!
