How it Works
What is Vashon Fresh?
Vashon Fresh is an online marketplace for locally grown and produced food. We make it easy for Island residents to buy local, sustainably grown food from 25 farms and food makers. You choose what you wish to buy, the amount, and the vendor. Then we put it all together for you to pick up at the end of the day. Or we will deliver it to you. Let us be your personal shopper!
Ordering from Vashon Fresh helps to build and support our community, and to preserve our precious agricultural land for future generations.
Vashon Fresh wants to demonstrate that on-line food ordering can benefit Vashon farmers and residents, not just the Amazons and Safeways of this world. Vashon Fresh is a project of the Vashon Island Growers Association (VIGA) whose mission is to promote farming, access to healthy food, and sustainable agricultural economy. Funding for Vashon Fresh comes from the King Conservation District's Regional Food Systems Grant program with additional support from the Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics Center at University of Washington and King County's Local Food Initiative.
