If you've not had a chance to attend the Fill Your Pantry events that have been sprouting up across the Willamette Valley in recent years, be sure to mark your calendar for next year (the events run from Mid October to Mid November, and this year were hosted in Linn, Lincoln, Benton, and Lane counties).
Fill Your Pantry is the one chance most of us locavores have to stock up on locally grown pantry staples including grains, beans, potatoes, onions, and corn. All vendors at the events are local, and many of them are also processing their own products (milling their own grains, for instance). It is a fantastic event and well worth the drive. Or, perhaps someone will host an event in Yamhill County next year!?
For a great recap of the event (circa 2011, but the structure hasn't changed), visit the Stitch and Boots blog here.

And for a video, just to convince you of the awesomeness of these events, watch below!
See you out there next year!
