It’s April! Perfect time to think about including more fresh local food in your diet:
- Visit the Bellingham Farmers Market. Opening Day is April 5. The Ferndale Public Market also will be opening in April.
- Pick up a copy of the 2014-15 Whatcom Food & Farm Finder which includes a wealth of information about what makes Whatcom County so special, including u-pick and farm stands, seasonal local events, organic farms and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms, as well a new Culinary Agritourism Map.
- Sign up for a CSA share and receive a box of locally produced food every week June-Nov.
The 2014 List of Whatcom County CSA Farms includes 18 local farms to choose from.
Growing Washington customer James Lupori put together a beautiful slide show of the veggies he received in his “Local Choice Food Box” last summer.
