PORT TOWNSEND — Registration closes today for the inaugural Farm to Table Trade meeting on Nov. 18.

The meeting will be from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend. The event is a business-to-business format.

A tasting reception will follow from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Eat Local First is a collective marketing campaign that “engages every part of the supply chain to promote locally grown, raised, harvested and made products with easily recognized branding and consumer education,” according to organizers, who say that it is linking partners across Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap counties.

Shoppers and diners around the central Puget Sound region will start to see the Eat Local First brand popping up on restaurant menus, at farm stands and in grocery stores.

The Eat Local First Olympic Peninsula partners include the Port Townsend Food Co-op, Jefferson County Farmers Markets, Olympic Culinary Loop, North Olympic Development Council, Jeannette Martens — a plant based chef and instructor — the Small Farms Program through Washington State University Extension Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap counties and The Local Food Trust.
