Why Pierce County Fresh
Fresh. Local. Healthy.
Eating what’s produced right here in Pierce County and supporting local farmers, farm stands and farmers markets is what Pierce County Fresh is all about.
A program of the Puyallup Watershed Initiative and with generous funding from The Russell Family Foundation, we bring together growers, producers and people who want to eat better, eat what’s in season and support local farmers.
We’re part of the PWI
Pierce County Fresh is just one of the many efforts supported and funded by the Puyallup Watershed Initiative (PWI), an organization dedicated to improving environmental and social conditions throughout our region, from Mt. Rainier to Commencement Bay.
Innovative and collaborative, PWI brings together people who don’t typically sit at the same table to address our region’s most pressing problems and biggest opportunities for change.
You’re invited to participate in any way that’s meaningful for you. Visit PWI.org to see how you can help the PWI build better futures for people, communities and our shared region.
In honor of Mother’s Day on May 13, we share a favorite way moms get kids to eat their veggies. Make this easy recipe and add fresh, local vegetables from Pierce County and your kids will be asking for seconds!
Everywhere we turn, fresh berries abound. While this salad features strawberries, we think it’s delicious with all berries — raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, just to name a few local favorites!
