Find the perfect apples for a holiday pie at a local farmers market.
Thanksgiving is little more than a week distant, and as shoppers start to stock pantries for the holiday, King County, Puget Sound Fresh and the Cascade Harvest Coalition offer a guide to find local ingredients for the feast.
Though the Issaquah Farmers Market has ended for the year, other farmers markets in the region continue to offer a selection of local wares. The markets also help support local agriculture.
The guide also includes a tip for holiday shoppers: Farmers can be great resources for recipes and the best practices on storing and preparing purchases. Farmers can also answer questions about interesting items to add to the holiday meal.
