Seasonal Eating Guide

LOCAL FOOD

Eating Locally = Eating with the Seasons

Did you know the average meal travels 2,000 miles before it gets to our plate? Not only is local food fresher and more nutritious, it tastes better! Biting into that first local strawberry, savoring a sweet local cherry tomato or the freshest caught wild salmon, there’s just nothing like it. To help you get started, we’ve compiled this handy season-by-season guide that can introduce you to what’s fresh and in season throughout the year. Have fun… and bon appétit!

Available Year-Round beans, dried beef beets cabbage carrots dairy products: butter, cheese, milk, yogurt eggs kale halibut and black cod hazelnuts herbs honey lamb mushrooms pork potatoes poultry soup bones salmon (flash frozen from Alaska) shell fish (farmed) sprouts … and, locally-crafted foods, from bread and jam to tea and wine!

Ask for more local: Can’t find a product you want locally? Talk to your favorite farmer and let them know you’d buy it if they produced it OR ask the restaurant or grocery manager to start carrying your favorite local products. Your requests make a difference!

Eat Local First Sponsor Highlight

Industrial Credit Union is proud to support local agriculture through flexible and affordable loans to farmers, ranchers and other value-added businesses, while providing a full range of low-cost services through our financial cooperative. We believe increasing local food growth and production will provide healthier options for our community.

Bellingham Farmers Market The heart of our mission is to support local agriculture. Beyond that, we also strive to support community. Eating local not only connects us to our food, but it connects us to each other and it is a natural extension of the inspiration we hope we instill in our customers each week.

Haggen Food & Pharmacy is proud to carry products from Washington companies, supporting the farmers, ranchers, fishers and food producers who make up our own community. We’ve been showcasing and celebrating our region’s wide variety of quality-focused food creators since 1933, and are pleased to be a part of this active, vital network.
