In an effort to support local farmers and food businesses and foster connections with consumers, the Tilth Alliance, a founding member of the Eat Local First collaborative, has launched its first Eat Local Month King County to better connect consumers and farm/food businesses in the area.

Throughout the month of August, residents and visitors are invited to celebrate local food in King County. The celebration — which focuses on the diversity of farms, ranches, fishers, farmer’s markets, and grocers – will highlight chefs, restaurants, food trucks, local food artisans, and makers who grow, raise, prepare, and create local food throughout the county.

Each week, the initiative will provide different opportunities to eat local food in King County. In addition, there will be special events, activities, recipes, buying local products, and resources, a special enter-to-win with prizes from local farms and food businesses.
