At its heart, eating local means choosing and celebrating the best flavors of our many regions in Washington State. When we change what we eat, we change things for the better. Local food offers the best nutrition, produces less waste and supports sustainable agriculture and local economies. Eating local nourishes our families, and the communities we love.
Treat your Taste buds
Seasonal and sustainably raised and caught food is more ripe, flavorful and carefully harvested than its far-traveled and off-season counterparts. Eating local means one of a kind meals.
Enjoy Good Health
Fresh and whole foods are a powerful way to keep you and your family healthy. Local farmers care about the families they are feeding and have a deep sense of responsibility to keep their food safe. Eating local first means putting the health of your family first!
Make your $ work harder
Dollars spent on local food circulate repeatedly throughout our food system and in our local economy, supporting local farmers, food businesses, and creating local jobs. Nourish the community you love.
Support your Neighbors
Local farmers, fishers, farm workers, delivery truck drivers, grocery store employees, cooks and many others rely on us. Our community food businesses work hard to provide food we can trust. By supporting them we show we care!
Save our Farmland
Washington is home to some of the richest farmland in the world, and by supporting local farms you help family farms thrive. Our farms are part of what make Washington such a beautiful (and flavorful!) place to live.
Eat For the Future
Across the state, farmers, ranchers, and fishers work hard to be good stewards of our land and waters, making sure our kids inherit healthy food and a healthy planet.
