About As Fresh As It Gets
The San Mateo County/Silicon Valley “As Fresh as it Gets” campaign began in 2006, highlighting the fresh produce and seafood in San Mateo County, as well as the area’s excellent locally made goat cheese, wines and beers. Each year, area hotels and restaurants are contacted and given information on which crops and types of seafood are in season and when they are at their peak, as well as information on where to buy the products locally. Qualifying restaurants serving these products receive an annual As Fresh as it Gets award. Winners are honored at a special reception with growers, nurserymen and wine and beer makers. Federal, State and County commendations are given to the winners. The program has also been recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
