Staying healthy is at the forefront of everyone’s minds and nourishing your body with good food is an important part of that. Snohomish County is home to an abundance of wonderful farms, working year-round to plant, grow, care for, and harvest nutritious crops, dairy products, livestock and more to feed our communities. It should be no surprise that many of your favorite local restaurants use these same farms products to create their delicious meals. If you are looking for a great restaurant with a menu featuring locally-sourced products, or a new place to get your produce from, we have a few spots for you to try out.
It can be difficult to find fresh, local produce all year round, but we are lucky to have Country Farms Market right here in SnoCo. Started in 1946 in the back of a pickup truck, the market now operates six delivery trucks and four locations with its headquarters in Everett. A family-run business, they offer a wide variety of locally grown produce and other unique seasonal products. Open every day, head over to Country Farms Market to support a local business and get some fresh produce for your holiday home cooking.
If you want to support local farms and businesses but are short on time, there are several restaurants that source their ingredients right from SnoCo and offer convenient and safe takeout options. Maize & Barley in downtown Edmonds specializes in Caribbean-inspired cuisine and has many gluten-free or vegan options. They have made it their mission to use as many locally-sourced, organic ingredients as possible, working with Caruso Farms in Snohomish to accomplish this.
Another great option for fresh local cuisine is Sage & Cinder in Mukilteo. With a focus on elevating vegan food, they use seasonal and locally sourced ingredients from organic farms in Washington. While they are temporarily closed for some minor renovations, they will be offering Christmas and NYE takeout menus for pre-order! Check out their website to learn more.
