EXCLUSIVE: Soon You’ll Be Able To “Eat Local” Organic, Handmade Foods In Burien
EXCLUSIVE: Eat Local owner Greg Conner has selected Burien for his stores’ second location in the greater Seattle area – he’s opening his 3500-square foot store at 810 SW 151st soon, right next to Bicycles West. His Queen Anne location has been open for three years.
Greg hopes to have Eat Local open by early fall of this year. He will also be locating Eat Local’s open kitchen in the Burien location.
Eat Local is a speciality food store, not a restaurant, or a grocery store,” explains Greg. “It’s a concept store specializing in food products purchased from local northwest organic farmers. It is also an artisan food store offering prepared meals made with seasonal, organic ingredients bought directly from local farms.
Organic farmers include:
- Thundering Hooves for pork, beef and lamb
- Salmon from Loki Fish
- Grains from Bluebird Grains Farms
- Stokesberry Farms will supply the organic eggs
…just to name a few.
Eat Local will be selling entrees, sides, baked goods, desserts, soups, all cooked on-site and frozen to keep the nutrients in. All the consumer has to do, is take it home and mike it (as in “microwave it“).
They will also be carrying a selection of other items, including:
- Rockridge Orchards cider
- Bluebird Grains
- Empire Ice Cream
- Tiny’s Organics
- Blue Cottage Jams and Woodrings Spreads
- Local cheeses, dairy and eggs
- Theyâ€™ll also have their own wine label from Mt. Baker Vineyards and beer from Georgetown Brewery
Greg grew up in Burien, and is a graduate of Kennedy High School. He wanted to come home to one of the best little cities in the Seattle area. I think Burien is going to just get better and better in the years to come.
If you can’t wait for the opening to enjoy their prepared food items, you’ll find them at Burien’s Thursday Farmer’s Market, which is one of four local farmer’s market selling the Eat Local products. You can also visit their location in Seattle at 2400 Queen Anne Ave. North.
