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 currently vend at 14 Seattle-area markets, serving tamales with homemade salsas as well as grilled vegetable quesadillas whose ingredients change with the seasons. We source most 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, set up our grills at special events — especially festivals focused on sustainability and local foods, and just opened Corncake Corner, a neighborhood, after-school outdoor eatery. We cater private parties as well, anything from cooking quesadillas and tamales on site in your backyard to designing personalized menus to meet your specific needs.
