Introducing the "Palouse Root Seller"

In response to COVID-19, and the impact it has had on our local economy, PCD has made a virtual farmers market - The Root Seller.

You can browse producers, and products, find their contact information, and place your orders with them directly.  No middle man, straight from the farm to your table.
