Patty Pan Grill
Patty Pan Grill 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 farmers' 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 a variety of local markets — some that run only during the summer season and some that run all winter. We offer a variety of tamales with homemade salsa as well as grilled vegetable quesadillas whose ingredients change with the seasons. We source many of our ingredients from the farmers who are our friends and neighbors at the markets.
In addition to our regular farmers' market gigs, we regularly roll out The Cart, host occasional Humble Feast 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 founder, teaches various classes on cooking and the food business.
