The Wenatchee Valley
The Wenatchee Valley has long been known for tree fruit, especially many varieties of apples, pear, and sweet cherries. Now wine grapes have been added to the list of perennial crops that flourish here. Fall is the season when we can find the greatest diversity of fresh, flavorful produce like:
- Green Beans
- Swiss Chard
Why Eat Locally Grown Foods?
When you buy directly from local farmers, you can know the source of your food. You can know that it hasn't traveled far so the premium is on freshness and taste rather than on prolonging shelf life for transport. It is healthy, wholesome food. And, when you buy locally, your food dollar helps support local farmers, the local economy, and valuable farmland in your region.
So, EAT local, EAT fresh, EAT healthy!
