GEORGE'S BAKERY

Kathy and Joe from George's Bakery are “just a couple of little guys” who like to work with and support the other little guys. They have a storefront bakery in downtown North Bend, but also sell at  several farmers markets each week in addition to Duvall Farmers Market. Joe comes from a multigenerational family of bakers.


They purchase as many of their ingredients for their delicious baked goods as locally and regionally as they can.  The farmers markets in which they participate provide much of their produce.  Their peaches come from Martin's and Calhoun's Orchards, and their berries from Hayton and Younquist Farms. Vegetables come from various farmers including Local Roots, CNL Farms and Growing Things from the Snoqualmie Valley, and Ayala and Bautista from the Yakima Valley.  But when the season ends they must rely on other sources to keep the case filled and the bakery going, and sometimes that's a challenge.


Flour comes from Pendleton Mills and Shepards Grain, NW sources.  However, it is distributed through ADM (Archer Daniels Midland), a large agribusiness conglomerate, and Joe and Kathy are unsure what the implications of this arrangement are.  In the bakery storefront they serve juice from Juiceworks, a small Seattle based company that provides pressure pasteurized fresh juices without preservatives.  Dairy and eggs come from Springbrook Farms, which is a distributor of Darigold as well as other local smaller producers.


One of their ongoing challenges is a domestic source of processed apples for their famous pies, which  formerly came from Washington State apples.  But at this time the only source of the product they need is China, which imports a large amount of the apples grown in this state.  Unsure why local sources have dried up, Kathy and Joe are frantically trying to find a supply that is at least American grown and processed. They are stunned and frustrated that just when the food supply has improved so much, it's a continuing challenge to find the local ingredients they prefer for their baked goods.





 

Fresh Bucks Program

.The Duvall Farmers Market is happy to support the Fresh Bucks program at the market again this year.  Fresh Bucks provides consumers who receive SNAP/EBT benefits with extra buying power (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps). By matching up to $10 spent per SNAP/EBT card holder on each visit to the Duvall Farmers Market, participants are able to purchase more produce from local farmers.  The purpose of the program is to expand access to fresh, healthy local food to low-income shoppers at farmers markets.

The Duvall Farmers Market will double the first $10 spent by a SNAP/EBT cardholder each market day. Go to the market information canopy to swipe your card and receive matching funds in Fresh bucks currency. Fresh Bucks matches for fruit and vegetable purchases only, not processed or prepared food, or non food items.
Once you receive your Fresh Bucks, you may purchase from any vendor who sells fruit, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, or vegetable starts. No change will be given for Fresh Bucks.
