Farm fresh is just a click away with Farmigo

Taking our kids to the farmers market can be a wonderful family excursion that yields delicious, nutritious rewards. It’s also an excellent opportunity to teach our kids about the importance of supporting our local farmers, and how eating locally is better for our bodies and for the environment. All that said, sometimes a busy schedule (and especially this time of year, the weather) can get in the way of a weekly trip to the farmers market.
Enter Farmigo, a pioneer of the burgeoning farm-to-fridge movement, which expanded to the Seattle-Tacoma area earlier this year. Farmigo connects you directly to local farmers at the click of a button, and it’s never been easier to feed your family delicious, farm-fresh food. Customers place their orders on Farmigo’s user-friendly website, then pick up their food from any number of locations.
Even better for local families, Farmigo offers a school fundraising program, donating more than $100,000 to local schools to date. Set your school as a pick-up site and Farmigo will donate 10 percent of the proceeds to the school’s fundraising effort, to be used on important projects and supplies for our kids. One participating school tells us that Farmigo has been their third-biggest fundraising effort yet, as well as a fantastic community-building experience.
Aside from the wonderful Northwest fruits and vegetables available, Farmigo also offers grass-fed and organic meats and charcuterie, wild-caught and sustainable fish, and wonderful pantry products from local artisanal bakeries and suppliers. Whether you’re setting up a delivery for yourself, or perhaps sending a basket of goodies as a holiday gift, it’s never been easier to put delicious, healthy, farm-fresh food on the table. Farmigo is offering Seattle’s Child readers 20 percent off for the month of December; just enter SEATTLECHILD20 at checkout.
