Salmonberry Essentials

Our weekly selection of the best farmers market haul sized for a household of 1. Truly seasonal regional fruit and vegetables, directly from our favorite small organic family farms, in a 1/2-size small farm share enough to cover several great farm-based meals plus a selection of Salmonberry staples.

Salmonberry Essentials includes:

  • a Small Farm Share, usually 6-7 crops: typically at least 1 fruit and 1 leafy green, plus whatever's best and in peak season;
  • a loaf of Salmonberry Sourdough (Country, Focaccia, Hippy Whole Wheat or bagels) or Wildflower Honey Granola; 
  • a caffeinated beverage of your choice (our Farm-to-Table Kombucha, housemade Willpower Chai, or single origin whole bean coffee);
  • and a rotating Salmonberry baked good :-)

We regularly work with John and Roxanne at Spring Rain Farm (Chimacum, WA); Colin & Genine at Kirsop Farm (Tumwater, WA); Melissa and Josh of Newaukum Valley (Rochester, WA); Amy and Agustin of Four Elements, in Puyallup; Brian Collins of Collins Family Orchards, Amy and Jacob of Boldly Grown (Everson, WA), and many more, depending on their growing season. 

We almost always include fresh P-Patch microgreens from our own Salmonberry herb garden. 

Sourdough Country, Focaccia, Hippy Whole Wheat or Sourdough Flake Salt Bagels: your choice of our naturally-leavened sourdough breads, all made from small farm fresh-milled Skagit Valley and Walla Walla grain. 

Wildflower Honey Granola (DF + GF): deeply caramelized with unrefined wildflower honey and maple syrup, and lightly savory from direct trade organic olive oil. 

Single Origin Coffee (340g): rotating fresh seasonal single origin coffee from our favorite Seattle area roasters. A popular Farm Box addition for folks who consume a bag a week.

1 liter Kombucha: our farm-to-table kombucha changes every few weeks with different fresh-juiced seasonal fruits and vegetables, always post-addition for maximum brightness.

1/2 gal Willpower Chai: in-house spicy chai concentrate by Alex's brother Will, perfected over the course of years for our sister cafe in Pioneer Square. All organic spices and sweetened with non-GMO brown sugar and Washington wildflower honey. 

Imperfect Produce is a venture-backed Silicon Valley-based startup that takes away business from independent farms, disrupting the CSA model with well-marketed sales of cheap, poor quality large-scale commercially grown produce. Read the labels at your local grocery store and you'll see even PCC sources produce dominantly from large farms out of state.

Vote with your dollar and have it feed you with beautiful nutrient- and flavor-dense crops that didn't travel across the country, but were grown by your neighbor with care for the soil and love for the earth.
