Belltown: If you’re tired of shlepping it to the SLU Whole Foods to pick up your Washington-made, all-natural whatnot, this should come as welcome news.
The mercantile from Marcus Charles, the man behind Local 360 restaurant, will be open for business beginning Tuesday, June 21.
Like the restaurant—which opened in the former Flying Fish space last winter—the retail operation will focus on sourcing local products. Those will include meats, produce from Full Circle in Carnation, custom condiments (pickles, dressings, ketchup, mayo), dairy products from Twin Brook Creamery in Lyden, dry goods, and wine and beer from Washington. It will be open from 11am to 8pm daily.
The store, which takes up the space once occupied by Flying Fish’s private dining room, has a separate entrance from its sister restaurant next door. The inhouse butchery, run by meat carver Ben Frey, will supply both eatery and shop.
