Whidbey Island Grown Weekend
May 28 - May 31
Join Whidbey Island Grown for the first WIG Weekend of 2021 over Memorial Day weekend, May 28-31. Whidbey Island Grown (WIG) Weekend is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate local farms and businesses on Whidbey Island, and to connect island residents with their local food system. Local restaurants will partner with local farms to serve a special WIG Weekend menu made with fresh, delicious, locally grown products that will be available all weekend long. Some restaurants even grow their own produce! Outdoor seating and take-out options are available. Look for markets and local businesses to highlight their locally made products as well.
Whidbey Island Grown will also have farm videos available to view on our Youtube channel. Get a behind the scenes look at your favorite farms’ tours, tutorials, and stories. Also head over to our Producer Features page to get to know our local producers.
In addition to these events, WIG has put together an Eat Local Guide with resources and links to help both islanders and visitors find and support the local farm community. Find farmers market times, farm stand guides, and tips for eating seasonally. Then be sure to visit your favorite farm stand, order from multiple farms at once through the Whidbey Island Grown Cooperative Food Hub to get the freshest food available.
