I'm going to be driving from seattle to vancouver with my mom and sister in the first week of september and wanted to see if anyone might have suggestions for some fun food experiences in between.
I heard there were a number of farms around Bellingham and wanted to see if anyone has favorites they can suggest in this area -- farm stands or u-pick farms. Also, what would be in season now?
We're also really interested in suggestions for restaurants in the area that focus on using fresh, local produce. We love to eat (!) and are looking for places that would be able to capture and define the flavor of the region that we'll be passing through.
We will probably drive up the 5 and then take Chuckanut Drive up to Bellingham. We are definitely willing to veer away from this route, though, if there is something tempting to the side. lol, the decision about which border crossing to take may also depend on where we'll be eating directly beforehand. :-)
