A community deeply rooted in agriculture, the Tri-Cities proudly celebrates the bounty of harvest with food festivals and farmers' markets that are like no other.
Each of the cities of Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland has a Farmers' Market. The Market is a chance to sip, sample and purchase direct from the grower. Fruits and vegetables piled high on a flatbed pickup; corn picked just hours before the market; the sweet aroma of homemade bread; fresh jellies and preserves; one-of-a-kind hand-crafted treasures and the friendly din of a bustling crowd greeting friends and neighbors.
