Fresh and local are healthy.
Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department supports farmers markets and locally grown/produced food. Access to healthy food helps make healthy people in healthy communities.
Many local items are available at farmers markets, including fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat and fish. Our Food Safety program educates, inspects and permits food workers to prevent foodborne illness and ensure that food available at farmers markets is safe.
