Local food, “grown right here on Whidbey Island” is again mapped out for all to find in the 2019 Whidbey Island Farm Stand Brochure put out by Goosefoot.
“It’s one of our favorite annual projects,” said Marian Myszkowski, director of programs for the Goosefoot Community Fund. “We really do think it reaches a lot of locals and visitors who then head to one of the many farmers stands and markets listed.”
So many new farm stands opened up in the past year, that an extra page was added to this year’s brochure.
The guide takes people through the farms, fields, flowers and other fresh produce offerings of Clinton, Langley/Bayview, Freeland, Coupeville and Oak Harbor and includes the community-supported agriculture shares, known as CSAs; 12 Birches Farm, Deep Harvest and SkyRoot Farm.
Farm stands are listed by locations with hours and the selection of fresh items — eggs, raspberries, yogurt, salt, blueberries, honey, mini-dwarf apple trees, plant starts, herbs, organic coffee, lavender, fresh lamb and much more.
Also included are the farmers market listings of Bayview, Coupeville, Bayview and Oak Harbor.
Popping up too late to make the brochure is Langley’s farmers market, open 2-6 p.m. Thursdays off Second Street in the alley near Whidbey Art Gallery.
