- THINGS TO DO
Many Skagit Valley farmers and food producers sell their products at their stores, farm stands, or farmers markets. Some are roadside attractions and other adorable markets. Each farm stand, store, market, or u-pick has a different personality, giving an inside story of the farmers and owners. Take the opportunity to buy fresh food directly where it is produced. Experience how your food is grown, raised, or produced.
The seasonal farm stands will open when they have enough product in the spring. This usually happens sometime in May, but is quite variable, depending on the farmers, their products, and the weather. Some open as early as February and others not until June, or even July for berry stands. The Skagit Valley Farmers Markets open in May or early June.
With over 150 years of farming history, the Skagit Valley is now recognized as one of the most important agricultural valleys remaining in Puget Sound.
Whether grown (or created) on land or pulled out of the water, Skagit’s probably got it, somewhere—oysters, beer, fresh produce, cheese, beef, tulips—you name it, it’s probably been a thing around here for a long time. ~Food&Wine
