From the Park View Farmers Market website:

“Access to locally grown food should be easy. However, mass market food supply chains make it difficult for local farmers, growers, and producers to connect directly with consumers in pursuit of fresh healthy food.

WashFarm Markets, founded by the wife and husband team of Michelle and Chuck, was created to help solve that problem. The mission of WashFarm Markets is to connect local farmers, growers and producers to local consumers.​

WashFarm Markets is proud to deliver its first farmers market, Park View Farmers Market on Jan 12, 2020. Read More
