Millwood Farmers’ Market Featured In Farmers’ Market Today Magazine

Fmtoday Fmtoday2

I had the privilege of going to Pasadena Park Elementary yesterday to present 4th grader Sean Levinson with a copy of Farmers' Market Today magazine whose latest edition features his award winning market poster from last season. The other award winners can be seen on the picture above. We'll have another poster contest for next season. The Millwood Farmers' Market runs through the winter from 2-6pm on Wednesdays at the Crossing Youth Center in Millwood.

On another note I recently discovered that Yoke's has a list of local producers on their website. They have a generous perspective on what is local (Blaine, WA doesn't feel too local to me) but definitely worth checking out.

Year of Plenty

The Year of Plenty blog was created by Craig Goodwin in the winter of 2008 to chronicle the experiences of his family as they sought to consume everything local, used, homegrown or homemade. That journey was a wonderful introduction to people and movements in the Spokane area who are seeking the welfare of the community through local foods, farmers markets, community gardens, sustainable transportation, and more fulfilling and just patterns of consumption. In 2009 and beyond the blog will continue to report on these relationships and practices, all through the eyes of a family with young children. Craig manages the Millwood Farmers' Market, is a Master Food Preserver and Pastor at Millwood Presbyterian Church. Craig can be reached at
