The Food & Farm Finder will be released on April 6th, opening day of the Bellingham Farmers Market. Inside this free guide, you will find over 120 local businesses that offer everything from apples to zucchini, locally made spirits to specialty cheese, and pasture raised animals to organic produce. The Eat Local First Food & Farm Finder also contains a fold-out map for easy navigation and helps folks find truly local food:
- U-pick and farm stands
- Sustainable and organic farms
- Food and farm events
- Sustainable fishers and ranchers
“The Eat Local First Food & Farm Finder is one of the best tools in our region. Find every kind of local ingredient you could want and tons of great ideas for getting out and enjoying our local food scene,” says Sara Southerland, Sustainable Connections’ Food & Farming Director. “We want to help make finding local food as easy as possible!”
All are invited to come by the Bellingham Farmers Market on April 6th to pick up your own free copy. To access the interactive map and listings, explore the Eat Local First Food Atlas at eatlocalfirst.org. This mobile-friendly map helps you find everything you would see in the printed version and more!
