NW Washington Fair Centennial LogoEveryone is invited to visit the Northwest Washington Fair this week in Lynden to taste a very special Centennial Smoothie. Whatcom Farm Friends, a sustainable agriculture policy advocacy group, coordinated with the Washington Red Raspberry Commission and the Whatcom County Dairy Women to develop a smoothie using all locally grown ingredients in honor of the Fair’s Centennial this year.

Individually quick frozen (IQF) strawberries, raspberries and blueberries from this year’s harvest are the main ingredients (with a small amount of non-local cane sugar added to the strawberries). Berries are being supplied by local growers Enfield Farm and Maberry’s.  Grace Harbor Farm will be providing a custom-made all Guernsey honey yogurt. (The honey is from a local producer as well.)

The Centennial Smoothie will be sold only during the fair this week at the two Whatcom County Dairy Women’s booths. Though the final recipe is still a closely guarded secret, if enough of you stop by the booth and say, “Whatcom Locavore sent me,” perhaps Dairy Women President Kim Vlas can be persuaded to share the details.

Fair ends Saturday, August 21.

Whatcom Farm Friends is an advocacy organization supporting sustainable agriculture policies.

Oh – I am so sorry that I missed this last night when we went. But…. I am hoping to persuade my husband to go again on Saturday and I’ll be sure to pick one up! 🙂

I just discovered your blog. Great post and I’m sorry I missed the smoothie, but I have to add one of my favorite things to add to a locavore smootie is hazelnut butter from Holmquist Orchards. You can even make a dairy-free smoothie with just a little hazelnut butter and fruit.

That sounds wonderful, Debra! I use Holmquist hazelnuts frequently, but haven’t tried their hazelnut butter yet. Will have to do that soon.
