Local Food Directory

WSU Extension Regional Small Farms Program is part of the Eat Local First Collaborative, a statewide effort to connect people to local food. Eat Local First is the go-to source for finding local farms and farmers markets, identifying restaurants, grocers, and food businesses that purchase from local food producers in Washington State.

Eat Local First Collaborative

Over the years, consumers and farmers alike have been asking for an easy-to-use online portal to connect farmers and eaters in Washington State, and meet the demand for locally grown food. Formed in 2020, the Eat Local First Collaborative is a collective of food system organizations working together to facilitate connections between consumers and farm and food businesses statewide. In November, 2020 the Collaborative launched the Eat Local First platform and the Washington Food & Farm Finder tool.

Members include The Local Food Trust, Pierce County Fresh, Sustainable Connections, Tilth Alliance, Washington State University Food Systems, and Washington State University Regional Small Farms Program with anticipated future participation from additional partners.

Washington Food & Farm Finder Map

The demand from consumers for local farm-fresh products has never been greater. Launched in 2020, Eat Local First is a digital platform featuring the WA Food & Farm Finder, a comprehensive, mobile-friendly searchable database connecting consumers with local farms, farmers markets, restaurants, grocers, wholesale produce and local food resources throughout Washington State.
