King County knows that visiting a farmers market is one of best ways residents can help build a stronger local food system. To help spread the word, King Country recently issued a news release announcing the opening of many of the County’s 41 farmers markets.

The County is also promoting shopping at farmers markets by encouraging residents to become “Good Food Champions” by being aware of what they consume, where it is grown or produced, and whether others also have the opportunity to eat healthy, local food.
