Washington Just Bagged 19 Good Food Awards

And our award-winning, hyperlocal producers are...

Good Food Awards receives thousands of entries, but only a fraction take home the win.

Every year our local-loving, artisan-aficionado state bags more than a few accolades at the Good Food Awards. The San Francisco–born national competition, which whittled down its long list of finalists and announced winners last weekend, celebrates independent food producers—you know, the people making such farmers market fare as shiro plum with mint spoon preserves and locally canned Aussie-style tomato relish. (Yes, those are actual 2019 Washington winners.)

But this year the Evergreen State took home a whopping 19 awards (up from last year which saw 16 wins) across 10 categories. But hey, we’re just glad pickled heirloom blueberries got some national recognition. You can scope out the full list of winners online, and Washington honorees of 2019 below.
