Curious where to grocery shop on the Olympic Peninsula? One great option is to utilize the farms and enjoy the bounty of our region. One of our favorite local farms is Red Dog Farm.
The beautiful certified organic, 23-acre farm grows over 150 different varieties of vegetables, berries, and flowers.
If you’ve eaten at The Fireside, then you have experienced some of the delicious produce Red Dog Farm has to offer.
Red Dog Farm has produce stands at the Port Townsend Farmers Market (Saturdays, April to December & Wednesdays, June to December), the Chimacum Farmers Market (Sundays, June to October), and the farm stand located on the farm.
Looking to join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)? Look no further than Red Dog. Belonging to the CSA allows you to get organic, in-season, local produce weekly, saves you money, helps support the local farming community, and keeps you informed about what is going on at the farm. Red Dog offers a convenient CSA pick-up at the Port Ludlow Beach Club.
For a truly unique grocery shopping experience check out Red Dog’s Farm Stand stocked with seasonal, organic vegetables, berries, cut flowers, and plant starts.
