Farmers Village

At the CHOMP! Farmer Village, you and your whole family can enjoy a huge variety of activities and information from our amazing program partners.

What role do farmers play in the local food system? Is it just producing food, or perhaps there’s more? Are food waste and food production connected? Just what is gleaning and does it provide creative solutions to feeding people? How does food get from farms to chefs’ kitchens? Does all food need to look uniform and perfect to taste good? Where can you go to see food being produced and get a real farm experience? And, just what can you do to eat more local?

Find out answers to all of these questions and more at the Farmers Village. Partners who work across the spectrum of the food system will be on-hand offering resources, creative ideas and sharing interesting things you may not already know, plus offering plenty of fun activities for all ages.

Farmer's Village Partners


This year we are very excited to have Dandelion Fuzzies & Plucky Palomino at CHOMP! Not only will you be able to meet the farm animals, but you’ll also get a chance to learn about how these wonderful animals have always been an integral part of farming here in the Pacific Northwest.

CHOMP! & FOOD LIFELINE Partnering together again for 2023, Food Lifeline will be accepting nonperishable food donations 10am – 5pm.

Food Lifeline is on a mission to end hunger in Western Washington. We firmly believe that access to food is a human right and that no one should go hungry. We know poverty, racial inequity, and social injustice have long fostered and perpetuated systems that reward some while leaving whole communities behind. We distribute food through a partnership with 350 food banks, shelters, and meal programs, enabling us to provide the equivalent of 282,000 meals every single day in order to foster healthy communities. Through grassroots advocacy, we work to shape local, state, and federal policy; we partner with organizations that are addressing poverty; and we’re building a movement to end hunger through community engagement and mobilization.
