Kitsap Fresh 

Kitsap Fresh is dedicated to providing a marketplace for its members and local Kitsap farmers. The mission is to promote seasonal, local food production and community supported solutions for our local food system. 

In addition, Kitsap Fresh exists to support and develop existing local producers; to support and develop new farmers, including non-traditional farmers.

1. Kitsap Fresh strives to be a business that is financially viable, environmentally sustainable and socially just.


2. Consumer Membership to Kitsap Fresh is free. Annual Producer Membership to Kitsap Fresh is $50.

4. Volunteering is encouraged but not required. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.   

5. Producers must fully disclose practices used to raise livestock and grow crops to members of Kitsap Fresh so consumer members can make informed purchasing decisions about producers and products offered. Full disclosure of growing, farming and production practices form the basis of trust between the producer and consumer members of Kitsap Fresh.


6. Producers may only sell products they themselves have grown or processed. A producer may not buy wholesale from someone else and then retail the product through Kitsap Fresh.
