In the Sequim Farmers & Artisan Market’s off-season, we work to promote the importance of shopping directly from Clallam County’s local food producers. Supporting our local farmers creates valuable economic opportunities and optimizes the health of a community. Farm fresh food tastes better and lasts longer.

When you shop at your local farmstand, not only do you forge a connection with the people who directly grow your food, you also know exactly where your food came from. With little exception, the produce found at farm stands has never left the peninsula.

With focused sanitation measures to ensure customer safety, farm stands are a great, low-contact alternative to crowded grocery stores, frequently providing the opportunity to find products that are out-of-stock elsewhere. We are so fortunate to live surrounded by food abundance.

It is a great time to show your support to our local farms by opting for a safe, transparent shopping experience. Farm stands offer an opportunity to access the freshest, tastiest food while supporting the livelihoods of your neighbors.
