We are very excited to announce the Port Gamble Farmer’s Market returning to Port Gamble every Sunday from 9 a.m. 3 p.m., May through September. The market will be located on Puget Way, next to Quilted Strait.
A team member of Butcher & Baker Provisions, Amanda Berridge, had the idea to bring the Farmer’s Market back to Port Gamble.
“As someone who has always been passionate about fresh and delicious food, having worked over 10 years in the hospitality industry; and who has always dreamed about having a farm or building a community garden when I moved to Port Gamble from Los Angeles this summer, I knew that this just might be the place to start to realize some of those dreams,” Berridge said. “Well, I’m probably a few years away from my other personal farm and garden goals, but when I was looking for a market in the area for my small batch cocktail mixer business, I finally connected the ideas and thought, ‘What better solution for both myself and a town that I’ve fallen so quickly in love with than to start a farmer’s market here in Port Gamble?”
The Port Gamble Farmer’s Market aims to showcase local produce and artisan products and will occasionally have live music. Stay up to date with the market by visiting portgamblefarmersmar ket.com, find it on Facebook and Instagram, and we’ll see you Sunday, May 6 at the market.

Butcher & Baker two-year anniversary
On April 22, Butcher & Baker Provisions celebrated its two-year anniversary of opening in the historic Automotive Station in Port Gamble. From its handmade sweets, prime cut savories, locally made artisan goods and a diverse menu, it has brought a unique and delicious element to Port Gamble. Chef Adam Sawasy and Chef Patricia Horton have enjoyed providing farmhouse food to countless fans and like to keep things interesting with a rotating menu.
What’s the in-house favorite dish?
“The items that I love so much on our menu are the ones that our kitchen staff is developing for every next menu change,” said Chef Sawasy. “We get the opportunity to cook and create, twist and tweak everything for sometimes weeks so when it makes it to your plate it is exactly what we envision. It is such a fun time cooking for each other and bouncing ideas back and forth and watching each and every staff member add their two cents. It is that type of fun that makes our food what it is.”
