With more than forty commercial crops grown here, the Yakima Valley has the largest variety of fresh grown produce in the Pacific Northwest, and our farmers and growers are the reason this is one of the most important agricultural regions in the nation. Not to mention that our irrigated, high-desert climate piled on top of volcanic soil creates the perfect recipe for growing farm fresh produce.
If you are looking for the freshest varieties of farm fresh fruits and vegetables, look no further than one of the many seasonal Farmers Markets scattered throughout the Valley. Nearly every community has at least one outdoor Farmers Market from spring until fall, and there even some indoor markets that operate year-round.
Stretching over 350,000 acres of patchwork, the fertile land of the Yakima Valley is an abundance of small farms yielding asparagus, eggplant, apricots, winter pear, mint, all kinds of berries, pumpkins and thirty other types of fruits and vegetables.Find a Farm
