Please note the event time change from previous months.

Spring is a time to entertain, to make connections through food, make these holidays your own, and extend your circle. As the host, it is time to shake things up. We don’t want to break the mold, just crack it a little bit. Join us for a celebration of sampling as each of our departments feature Spring products and recipes in a slightly untraditional fashion! Help us choose the winning department - vote for your favorite sample and enter-to-win a $25 Whole Foods Market gift card!

We’ll also be launching this year’s EEU bags. EEU is an early childhood program at the University of Washington that serves children from birth through kindergarten, with and without developmental disabilities, in an inclusive environment- at no cost to families.  Each of these bags started in the class room at the EEU. Students used mixed media to create the adorable one of kind artwork, which was used to create the beautiful bags. Join us as we unveil this year’s bag designs, and pick up a few for your collection!
