Eating Local

What is “local”? For the Port Townsend Food Co-op local is defined as Jefferson, Kitsap, Island, Mason and Clallam Counties.

It’s the new “organic.” As organic farms and processors get bought up by large, sometimes multinational, corporations and grow to a scale that departs from the original intentions of the organic movement, food eaters are turning their attention to the farming operations in their own backyards. If you want to cultivate your local palate, learn about local producers in our region, get in on local food conversations, or even experiment with your own eat local challenge, check out some of the resources in this section of our website.
