bellingham farmers marketWhen it comes to bringing local and organic foods to the table, the Community Food Co-op and Bellingham Farmers Market have the same ideas in mind. They both educate consumers on our local food systems and highlight what’s in season. That’s why both organizations are coming together to share an informational platform on WhatcomTalk. This Food & Farming Channel hosts conversations and profiles centered on producers, events in local agriculture and locally made goods.
