The free, self-guided tour takes you through eight local farms, two wineries and the Bellingham Farmer’s Market.

Eat Local Month encourages people to eat at independent restaurants in their community, especially ones listed in the Eat Local Month Guide.

Copies of the guide are available in most local grocery stores.
