Plants offered at the Edible Plant Sale are the best varieties to grow successfully in our Pacific Northwest climate. You’ll find an amazing selection of tantalizing fruits and veggies to choose from, as well as culinary herbs, edible flowers, pollinator plants, and even gardening supplies that will help maximize your harvest all year round.

Please be aware that we may not have all of the listed varieties at the 2021 Edible Plant Sale. Occasionally, the growers will experience a crop failure or the plants will be too small to sell. The popularity of gardening through 2020 and again in 2021 is also making seed stock scarce for growers! We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 


Helping hands will be needed to make this year’s Edible Plant Sale as safe and enjoyable as possible. There will be a variety of ways to help, from plant care to shopper support. Plus, join our amazing volunteer crew and you’ll get free access to the Early Bird Sale benefits!  Sign up for a volunteer shift (or two!).
