Food & Drink

Washington is famous for our apples, seafood, wine, and craft beer – and for good reason. With a rich agricultural history and world-class chefs committed to sourcing local ingredients, there’s no shortage of farm-to-table restaurants and culinary experiences. Foodies will love sampling their way around Washington. Sip wine made with grapes from one of our 20 AVAs, or grab a beer crafted with hops from the Yakima Valley. Enjoy oysters plucked fresh from along our miles of coastline or savor locally foraged chanterelle mushrooms from the forest floor. No matter what, you’ll never go hungry (or thirsty) in Washington State.
