Food Roots has expanded its FarmTable project into a year-round storefront on Main Avenue in Tillamook. FarmTable is a farm direct consignment project that connects small-scale Tillamook County farmers, fishers, ranchers and other food and agricultural producers and their products directly to consumers through a Main Ave. storefront. “In our rural community where food production is our roots, this storefront is both timely and relevant for people to reconnect with their local food system,” said Lauren Sorg, Food Roots Executive Director. “FarmTable was a dream of our late founder, Shelly Bowe, who passed away in June 2017 after a battle with ALS. I know she’d be so happy to see it in its fruition.” Open year-round, FarmTable is now stocked with everything from raw honey, pasture raised eggs, cheese, meat, seafood, herbal teas, plants and more. Additionally, this location is now a CSA pick-up location for three Tillamook County farms beginning this May, and through November. FarmTable is also a participant of the Visit Tillamook Coast’s North Coast Food Trail, which launches on April 14th and stretches from Cannon Beach to Lincoln City.
