Local Food | Live Music | Exclusive Sales | Raffle Prizes | And More!

All store locations

Join us on Saturday, June 17 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. as we celebrate all things local! At this fun, family-friendly event, you will meet local growers and producers, sample their delicious fresh foods, shop exclusive sales on local products, and enjoy live jazz, blues, and acoustic music. Come taste some of our favorite local meats, cheeses, fresh produce, ice cream, and more. Local vendors will include favorites such as Ferndale Market, Salad Girl, Gerhard’s Brats, and many others. Additionally, youth interns from Urban Roots, our June Positive Change recipient, will be leading cooking, gardening, and environmental conservation activities at each store.
