Patty Pan Grill
Patty Pan Cooperative is Seattle's oldest farmers' market concession. We've been selling hot, ready to eat food at farmers' markets since 1997, when there were only two neighborhood markets in the city. We have been fortunate to be part of the local foods movement as it has grown and thrived.
We vend at 17 weekly markets in the Seattle area — some that run only during the summer season and others that are open all winter. Our menu showcases tamales with homemade salsas, as well as grilled vegetable quesadillas whose ingredients change with the seasons. We source many of our staples from the farmers who are our friends and neighbors at the markets.
In addition to our regular farmers' market gigs, we host Humble Feast buffet dinners, and set up our grills at various special events — especially festivals focused on sustainability and local foods. We cater private parties as well, offering anything from cooking quesadillas and tamales on site in your backyard to designing personalized menus to meet your specific needs. And in case you feel like doing it yourself, Devra Gartenstein, Patty Pan's founder, teaches classes on cooking and operating a food business.
