The Yakima Valley has the most varieties of fresh produce in the entire Pacific Northwest. And the best way to shop for it is by supporting the local growers and farmers, and visiting their booths at one of the many farmers' markets in the area. Many people think of farmers' markets as just a summer thing - but many of them continue through the fall too! Use this list to find a new one to try out this month.
