Carnation, WA

The Snoqualmie Valley Farmers Cooperative is an organization of about 20 small, local farms working together to bring you fresh produce. Farmers run the show! Our member farms initiated and built the co-op so that they could spend less time on logistics and more time growing your food. In exchange, you get more diversity while supporting the whole local foodshed, not just one farm. All of our member farms utilize responsible environmental and food production practices- read our pledge to learn more.

Additional Tips

  • Accept offers of help!
  • Prepare as much as you can ahead of time.
  • It is about sharing a delicious meal, not about perfection.
  • You may have more food in your box than you need or want for a single meal. All ingredients will keep well for several days, many for much longer.
