Eat Local First Olympic Peninsula successfully hosted two month-long celebrations in 2020 – September to explore and enjoy the bounty of local food with its first annual Eat Local Month virtual marketing campaign. October focusing on our bounty from the sea.
Each week, the community was invited to connect with our region’s local food system through farmers and farmstands, restaurants, farmers markets, local grocers and retailers, food banks, seafood producers, and more.
The fall is a great time to enjoy the bounty produced by our many local farms. From fresh dairy products, to delicious vegetables and fruits, to high quality meat and eggs, shoppers can meet virtually all their grocery needs buying directly from farms and local retailers right here on the Olympic Peninsula. By supporting local farmers, consumers are building meaningful relationships with the people who grow their food, they are ensuring more dollars stay in our local communities, and they are supporting the health and longevity of our farmland for many years to come.
We look forward to again offering the focus and celebration throughout the coming seasons.
