Lopez Island Food, Farms & Artisan Producers
Although Lopez Island has a smaller population than the other islands, there is a lot of agricultural activity, including beef, pork and shellfish production, orchards, vegetables, herbs and flowers grown by dedicated Lopezians who share their bounty at farm stands, the island's farmers' market and local restaurants.
Lopez Island Farmers Market
In Lopez Village right next to the community center, take time to stroll the Lopez Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from mid-May through mid September. Not only a fine place to have lunch, but also a chance to pick up unique gifts. Here many of the island’s artists set up shop—hand blown and stained glass, fiber art, jewelry, pottery—along with an abundance of fresh produce and seafood, meat, homemade jams, and herbal products. Dogs welcome on leash.
