My family took the opportunity over Spring Break and traveled to Sayulita Mexico! My mom & her fiancé Martin recently retired there. It was a beautiful area to explore! The culture, food, beaches & locals make for a memorable experience. Before we travel we always consider ways we can shop & experience local. Local means, Grown, Raised, Harvested, Made. My mom took us to the local farmers market where I could see similarities & differences from our Arlington Farmers Market. I visited the local florists, purchased hand woven baskets and enjoyed fresh pressed juice. Mom shopped local vegetables & vanilla. Later, Martin arranged for The Tequila Experience. A private pairing & tasting. We were giving the history & educated on quality tequila. This experience was one of the most memorable! Our adventures in Mexico were flawless because we had incredible hosts & they wanted to share their favorite local spots with us. As you begin to plan your next Washington State adventure consider spending some time on the Eat Local First website. This resource is the ”Know your farmer directory”. Here you’ll search by city or zip code. Search for farms, markets, restaurant, artisans, seafood & local resource you may not have otherwise known about. When you consciously choose to Shop Local you are supporting a farmers dream. Your impact makes a ripple effect at so many levels. I challenge you to Eat Local First. Safe travels friends & Keep Flourishing!
