Eating local is a noble but difficult task. It can be hard to schedule shopping days at farmers' markets, and harder still to find dishes that incorporate the season's bounty. Luckily, Acme Farms + Kitchen covers all of these bases. The company specializes in locavore boxes that include not just veggies, fruits, meats, and other ingredients, but also recipes and meal plans.?
Acme's foods come from an extensive network of farmers and artisans, including Western Freedom Seafood, Samish Bay Cheese, Breadfarm, and Bellingham Pasta Co. Customers simply log on anytime before Sundays at midnight, choose a box, select a delivery time, and wait for their shipment to arrive on the following Thursday. Regulars can even leave the packing materials from their last order out on their porch? Acme will reuse them for future orders or add them to their epic cardboard-box fort.
