Farm Fresh Fridays at United General

Chris Johnson, a PSFN member buyer and regular at the Skagit WholeSale Market, likes to keep us in the loop about his weekly Farm Fresh Friday menu at United General Hospital in Sedro-Woolley, WA.  I had a chance to dine there yesterday and was so impressed, I wanted to share it with our readers.  Here is a photo of the my lunch plate.  The cost?  $7.25 including dessert. The only non-local ingredients I noticed were lemon zest, almonds and perhaps the chile peppers in the Eastern Washington nectarine salsa.  EVERYTHING else is local and seasonal to Puget Sound.
