You’ve begged and pleaded; prayed and hoped. You asked your neighbor who works with someone who knows the son of the owner of New Seasons. Or Green Zebra. Or whoever isn’t shitty Fred Meyer.
“Set up shop on Foster! Give us healthy food.”
Foster’s a risk, maybe. I mean, we are sorta this no-man’s-land surrounded by Safeway, Fred Meyer, Walmart, Walgreens, and Trader Joe’s. I guess not all’s bad then. But that’s like saying we’re surrounded by McDonald’s, Burger King and Taco Bell, so we’d be fine without good burger or taco options. Wait, that was us. Once. Now we have Foster Burger and many good taco options. See, progress is to be had.
But back to the produce thing. We fantasize about easy access to fresh and healthy food. Instead, we make do with our little corner of organics in a little corner of the worstest Fred Meyer ever. Ever.
So we clamor for more. (At least we have a rad fruit stand nearby.)
Well, more is happening. Even if just temporarily. Our neighborhood purveyor of all things hoppy and great, N.W.I.P.A., will be hosting Cascade Organic Thursday for a farmer’s market of sorts.
Say what?!?! Farmer’s market?
Yes. From 5 – 8 p.m., THIS THURSDAY, Cascade Organic will be setting up shop inside N.W.I.P.A. and selling fresh and organic produce, as well as portioned seafood for purchase. (Why hasn’t anybody else thought of selling beer and produce simultaneously yet?) What’s more, this may not be a one-time deal. If turnout is proper (hint: you better show the hell up and buy stuff), the owner of Cascade Organic may return for another go-around. And if proper turnout continues (hint: keep showing the hell up and buy stuff), who knows, maybe they’ll see Foster is the place to be (and set up shop permanently somewhere). I mean, we all know that Foster’s the place to be. Now we have to convince the outlanders.
Thursday, 7/24, from 5 – 8 p.m.. Do it.
