The past two years we've seen our commercial work greatly expand, and it continues to do so this summer with our masterminds teaming up with the fine folks behind one of Olympia's much-welcomed revitalization projects--the 222 Market.
After working on the design plans for the 222 Market, we are now officially the contractors for the inviting, Euro-vibed corner market and we are stoked. This is one rad (and beautifully designed!) place that houses Broth Bar, a trendy Portland gig; Sofie's Scoops, a delicious gelateria to satisfy our Italian summer dreams; Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar (a personal fav of ours!), plus a floral shop, distillery room, artisan grocery and an expansion of the Olympia staple, The Bread Peddler. If all of this doesn't excite you, quick!--check your pulse!
The set date for opening of the market is late September 2016, but word on the street is that The Peddler Creperie is already open, serving delicious food and getting a lot of positive, well-deserved buzz!
About 222 Market
222 Market will be a vibrant gathering place for the artisan food crowd in Olympia, Washington. In a historical building that was originally the home of Olympia’s Packard Car Dealership, the building is being transformed into an open marketplace where residents and visitors can gather to enjoy the bounty and drinks of our local food communities in a warm and inviting atmosphere. An artisan style food market, described as a 'European Market meets Hip Olympia Funk', the 222 Market will anchor the downtown food scene by bringing local food and artisan businesses together to compliment the renowned Bread Peddler, multiple winner of Washington’s Best French Bakery. The Bread Peddler will be joined by two additional exciting concepts, Peddler Creperie & General Store and Peddler Bistro. Other exciting participants in this artisan market are Blind Pig Spirits Craft Distillery, Broth Bar, Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar, Fleurae Floral Design, Sofie's Scoops and Pantry.
