Shop with a Chef Tour at Bellingham Farmer's Market, Sept. 15

Sustainable Connections and the Bellingham Farmers Market announce a special Eat Local Month event, Shop With A Chef, on Sept. 15, 2018. Executive chef Todd Alan Martin from Hundred North will take a small group on a personalized tour of the Bellingham Farmers Market, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The group will get to know local family farmers and food artisans through one of Whatcom’s most talented chefs, taste local products, and peruse the bounty of harvest season. Each attendee will get $10 in market bucks to shop for ingredients on a recipe created by Todd special for this event. Learn how to shop like a chef, discover new flavors, and get inspired. Chef Todd grew up in Spokane, spent many years cooking in Nashville, and considers himself an American chef. Tossing aside the stereotype of Eurocentric chefs using French and Italian styles, Todd draws inspiration from Native American, Mexican, and Central American traditions. His focus on local cooking traditions is a natural fit with his passion for sourcing ingredients locally. He's cooked and traveled all over the world and still believes nothing compares to PNW ingredients and flavors in Bellingham. Tickets for the event are $10 and available at  More info at

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
