In Edmonds, folks have embraced the term “localvore,” — a loyal patron of all things local — thanks to a savvy group of women business owners and the day-long event they came together to create five years ago.
“Our localvore event is our way of celebrating entrepreneurship and celebrating people who support independent businesses,” said Laura Zeck of ZINC. “We created a day full of fun shopping and treats, and topped it off with a goody bag with swag from each business.”
This year’s event runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. May 5, and the ladies of Localvore invite you to come to downtown Edmonds to enjoy a day filled with special deals and unique experiences at ZINC, Walnut Street Coffee, Rogue, Scratch Distillery, and The Refinery Salon.
Rogue’s Kimberly Koenig referred to the past years’ events as “a downtown-wide party.”
Pick up a passport at any participating business. Visit the five locations, get a stamp at each, then receive a Localvore gift bag at Scratch Distilling, where you’ll be entered to win a grand-prize giveaway worth $1,000.
“The energy is contagious and every year we love to out-do ourselves,” said Pam Stuller of Walnut Street Coffee.” Edmonds is such a charming setting, and the Localvore event just takes our Edmonds magic up another notch.
“It’s simple. It supports local businesses, it celebrates the community, and it’s fun!”
Visit each of the following stores before ending at Scratch Distillery to receive a gift bag (gift bags limited to the first 150 participants who provide receipts from at least two of the participating shops. Valid 5/5/18 only. You must be 21 and older to participate. One card per customer).
