Join us at the market on Sunday, October 13th for a special demo from Andrew Garrett, Chef and Owner of NW Elixirs! 

Andrew Garrett is a published and award-winning chef who has a passion for food and life thanks to countless adventures and travel around the globe. Having grown up in Sonoma, California, Andrew quickly developed an appreciation for all things local. While serving for the U.S. Army in Germany, he was able to spend many weekends traveling to France and Tuscany, where he felt right at home enjoying local delicacies, such as wine and cheese and in his leisure, foraging and taking up butchery. Andrew is enamored with French and Italian culture and cuisine and its regional diversity. His passion for ingredients is quintessential in bringing his patrons the best possible recipes and sauces. Andrew is excited to share his sense of adventure and thirst for knowledge and inspire anyone with a passion for great food.

Market Cancelled Sept 29 due to weather

September 27, 2013 |  by  |  News  |  No Comments
Due to the expected severity of winds and rain on Sunday, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the market for September 29th.

From the National Weather Service Special Statement issued at 1:38 PM:

THE SECOND POTENTIALLY EVEN STRONGER STORM IS EXPECTED TO APPROACH SUNDAY AND MOVE THROUGH THE AREA SUNDAY NIGHT. THIS STORM WILL ALSO HAVE TROPICAL MOISTURE WITH IT AND MAY HAVE SOME OF THE REMNANT CIRCULATION OF THE FORMER TYPHOON IN IT. THIS STORM WILL BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF HEAVY RAIN TO SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT. EVEN STRONGER WINDS ARE POSSIBLE WITH THIS STORM…BOTH AT THE COAST AND INLAND.

This isn’t a decision we take lightly, but given the potential risks of travel and compromised safety while onsite, it was deemed necessary. We look forward to welcoming you back onsite at 10 am on Sunday, October 6th.
