YAKIMA, WA -- If you live in Yakima, you now have an easier way to find out where you can buy locally made gifts for the holidays.

The Yakima Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau just launched Yakima Valley Made, a website that provides a directory of more than 100 locally based farm products, crafted consumer goods, food and beverages.

The Visitors and Convention Bureau says the website is a great way to bring more attention to local businesses.

"Our hope is that it will help nurture and encourage local producers of products as well as to get more visitors, as well as our residents helping to promote those things that are made and produced in the valley," said CEO John Cooper.

The website just went live on Thursday.

Cooper said you can't buy items online yet, but he thinks the website might be heading in that direction soon.
