The Sammamish Valley Alliance (SVA) 2021 Summer Celebration begins on July 17, according to a press release. 

SVA has been working in the valley for years with a dedicated group of farmers and business owners to enrich the public’s knowledge regarding local, sustainable, small-farm agriculture, the release states. Sammamish Valley Celebrations, a project of SVA, looks a bit different this year due to the ever-changing circumstances surrounding the pandemic and Covid-19 restrictions. 

As the celebrations take place throughout the summer, the organization encourages people to purchase local, fresh, pesticide-free food that’s grown right in their own neighborhoods. Those who visit the farm may enjoy the natural, bucolic setting as they meander around the valley, and they can learn about the environmentally sustainable agriculture community. 

Whether residents grab some veggies at the farm market, get a jar of honey or jam at their favorite farm store, or pick up corn and a gorgeous floral bouquet from a street side stand, their local purchases will impact the economic vitality of the entire Sammamish Valley, the release states.

All ages are always welcome, but masking and social distancing requirements must be upheld. 

Visit sammamishvalley.org/summer-celebration/ for more information on open days and hours and links for individual farms and businesses. A complete list of Sammamish Valley farms can also be found at sammamishvalley.org/about/#farms. 

The Summer Celebration is presented by SVA with support from the King County Local Services CSA Program and Olympic Nursery, Inc.
