PLEASE NOTE: Events listed on this site are from a variety of sources, and later details regarding sold out status, cancellations, time/date/location/price changes, etc., might not always be updated on this site. Please ALWAYS check with the venue listed to confirm the final details for the event before heading out.

Fresh-Picked Seattle is your guide to the best fresh, free and natural events around the Sound.

Looking for something to do? See the CALENDAR. You can search by category, or use the calendar search to track down events on keywords in or in certain locations. Note the FREEATTLE category: all of those events are FREE! 

If you're just curious about what's going on out there, click on the FEATURES or PHOTO GALLERY section to not only see event reports, but possibly pick up some tips or recipes from previous events Fresh-Picked has attended and posted a field trip report.

The food, free and/or nature/outdoor events covered on this site are sourced and submitted from all sorts of venues and instructors. Fresh-Picked covers a variety of events, but events with an educational component have a special place at the heart of the site. It's not just about what to do, but HOW to do things, and so learning opportunities are among the favorites posted and promoted.

The site is currently in transition, combining three previously somewhat separate sites - Fresh-Picked Seattle, Freeattle, and Seattle Natural Selection. Please bear with me as the site will be under construction for several weeks.

The site will be accepting advertisers again. Connect with a great fan base for very reasonable rates. Contact me at fps.lqs at gmail.com or 206-457-9822 for more information.
