FreshLocal Coming to Bremerton This October

Fresh local vegetables, plus eggs, cheese, milk, frozen meats and locally made value-added food products will soon be available in scenic Bremerton.

A group of local farmers, including StartNow, Pheasant Fields and Harlow Gardens, are behind the new venture, with efforts underway to recruit more participants.

All local farmers and producers of local food products who follow non-toxic, sustainable principles are invited to contact Jean Schanen, jscha@speakeasy.net for more information.

Although it's late to plant most winter crops, says Schanen, they'd like to hear from anyone who is interested, in order to start planning for the spring.

Local food lovers are also welcome to get involved and stay current with progress updates, what's fresh in store and add input on what they would like to see on the shelves. Even though space is limited says Schanen, they're giving thought to adding organic bulk products like beans and grains and organic spices to round out their offerings.

Good news for farmers and friends of locally grown fresh food - this makes for a big contribution to Bremerton and Kitsap County.
