Our 4th installment of the Meet Me at the Market features Pamela Rose from one of our popular specialty food vendors, All About Cookies. Pamela generally vends at our market during the peak summer months, due to teaching at the University of Washington.
Tell Us About Your Business and Products
All About Cookies is a micro wholesale bakery located in the heart of Seattle. We've been making delicious gourmet cookies in over 30 different flavors for 13 years! We distribute to local coffee shops such as the Chocolati Cafes, and cater large events for clients such as Boeing and the University of Washington, as well as selling our cookies all summer at the Market. We are very proud of the products we make, we strive to be locally sourced and organic when possible, and when it comes to flavor, we go all out! Over the course of our time selling at the market, we've become known for our variety and creativity- with flavors like Peanut Butter Bacon, Ginger Lime, Triple Mint Fudge, Apricot Orange White Chocolate Macaroons, Chocolate Cherry, Habanero Fudge plus our S'Mores and Lemon Bars, we have folks come back again and again for our cookies! It was our pleasure to take part in the Food Truck Rally and we're very excited for Dragon Fest 2014 and the Seattle Street Food Festival. We love making cookies almost as much as we love people enjoying them!
How has the Fremont Sunday Market Helped your Business?
We’ve really enjoyed our four years selling at the Fremont Sunday Market. From a personal standpoint, t’s been wonderful to sell to customers directly, to share stories and be a part of the community. We love meeting vendors, talking to other local artisans about their products, and seeing the endless parade of adorable dogs and kids, so it’s given the business a great new facet. From a more practical standpoint, while the wholesale aspect of the business has been our bread and butter, the exposure of physically being there every week has made us much more accessible to our customers, and puts a face to our products. Ideas for new products flood in from our regulars, and it’s led to some awesome creations! It’s a win-win for everyone.
Tell Us Something Unique or Interesting About Your Business.
The owner and baker of All About Cookies, Pamela Rose, began baking gingerbread for her family on an antique wood stove in a remote cabin in Alaska. Now she bakes in a commercial kitchen in the basement of a beautiful old Victorian house where she now lives in Fremont. Sharing food, and baking for people has been more than a tradition– it’s a way of life. Pam isn’t just an excellent baker, she is a brilliant and resourceful cook, and can be found any night of week whipping up a heck of a dinner. She has even considered putting together a cook book from all of her culinary adventures (but those of us who get to enjoy the food she makes want to keep her secrets to ourselves!)
