From within Capitol Hill’s Chophouse Row, you can now have care packages full of delicious, local things sent to your favorite Seattle ‘stay home’ castaway

A Capitol Hill business owner is helping lead the way on a new project hoped to help small shops and food and drink crafters from around the community stay connected to the city as “stay home” restrictions continue.

Good in Seattle is a local delivery box “that comes full of products made by small businesses in our community” — from fresh pasta from Lagana in Ballard to records from Broadway’s Spin Cycle.

Brandon Waterman announced the new project this week with lots of connections to the home of his Good Weather bike shop and cafe, 11th Ave’s Chophouse Row.

The new shopping and delivery service won’t depend on bikes, though. The packs are too heavy for cycling, with plans to fill the parcels for weekly delivery around Seattle:

Every week, you’ll have the opportunity to pre-order boxes, delivered directly to homes in Seattle, so it’s easier to support the companies you love. This is our way of celebrating the amazing things this city continues to offer each and every one of us. Your support helps to assure the future for all of the participating companies and, as a bonus, you’ll get some help filling those idle hours at home with delicious and fun stuff.

Lagana Foods – Fresh Pasta with Pesto Nettle Sauce

Seawolf Bakers –  Sourdough 1/2 Loaf

KurtWoodFarms – Dinah’s Cheese (1/2 round)

BellFlower – Single-Origin Chocolate

Sweet Alchemy – Ice Cream – “London Fog”

Nashi Ciders – 4 pack of deliciousness

Seattle Made Wine by Elsom Cellars

Stoup – Double Crowler

Beneficial Brewing Kombucha

Salt Blade – Salami

The Kitchen Imp – Spice Packets

Beneficial Brewing – Kombucha 2-16oz cans.

Herkimer Whole Bean Single Origin Coffee – 12oz bag

Westman’s Bagels – 2 pack with Schmear

Beast & Cleaver – Sausages

Ayako & Family – Jam – Plum Jam

“We’re starting off with a morning box and an evening box with products from more than 15 great companies and will figure things out from there,” Waterman said.

The boxes aren’t cheap, ranging in price from $85 to $160 depending on the mix you choose, but think of them as the ultimate self care reward or a proper COVID-19 relief package — pay attention, Congress — to send to a friend or loved one in the city.

The initial roster has some familiar names from around Chophouse plus a few new things to try. “Some things you may have never tried before, others are probably tried and true favorites,” Waterman said.

Despite COVID-19 shadow, Capitol Hill Farmers Market going on as scheduled for shoppers — and vendors

Looking for some normalcy as you “Spring Forward” from this COVID-19-shadowed end of winter?

Organizers of the Capitol Hill Farmers Market say the weekly gathering of local farmers, food, and, drink is still on for this Sunday on Broadway:

Farmers Markets in Seattle will continue as planned this weekend, including the University District, West Seattle, and Capitol Hill Farmers Markets, run by the nonprofit Neighborhood Farmers Markets, and the Ballard Farmers Market, run by the Seattle Farmers Market Association. The markets offer year-round economic opportunity to over 200 Washington State farmers and local food businesses, and also provide access to fresh nutritious food in local settings.

“It is important that everyone understand farmers markets are a place to buy nutritious local food, not a social event,” Jennifer Antos, executive director of the Neighborhood Farmers Markets said in the announcement of the decision. “As an organization based in community connection, our top priority is the health and wellness of market shoppers, vendors, and our staff.”

Don’t forget your clocks will leap forward. This Sunday also brings the start of daylight saving time.

Soul Holiday Market

The Africatown-sponsored event will feature games, music and food trucks.

Midtown Center, meanwhile, might hang around a little longer. Wednesday night, a combined East and Central Area review board voted to send the latest design proposal for the seven-story mixed-use project planned to rise on the block back to the drawing board for further refinement of its community art plans.

As for holiday shopping, expect a busy weekend around the Hill and the CD. For more fun things to get out and do, check out this week’s On the List. You can also find more local shopping and gift ideas on the CHS Shop the Hill page.

“I worship at the altar of Yohji Yamamoto.” Continue reading
