Attention Yelm Chamber of Commerce members! The Yelm Food Cooperative is hosting a Business After Hours event this Thursday, May 20th. Grab this opportunity to explore Yelm’s only natural foods market, learn about the Yelm Farmers Market, and sample some delicious appetizers prepared by Dawn Young, formerly of Early Dawn’s Eatery.
When: Thursday, May 20th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Where: The Yelm Food Cooperative, 308 E. Yelm Avenue
“It’s a chance to enjoy catered food, become a member of the Co-op, sample wines from The Wine Cellar, or become a donor,” says board member Terry Kaminski. “It’s a forum where everything is available.” Farmers Market Manager Karen Rae will also be on hand to answer questions and explain sponsorship opportunities.
“All of the appetizers will be created using products that come directly off the Co-op shelves and we’ll be providing little recipe cards if people want to go home and replicate them,” says Dawn. “Everything that we’re serving will have no cooking involved, just preparation, which makes them perfect for quick and easy summer serving, especially with graduations and all of the summer holidays coming up.” Note: these will include avocado truffles with cocoa and Himalayan salt, pictured above.
Terry adds that the event will also include several door prizes. Most importantly, she says, “This event is about expanding awareness. We want people to know what the Co-op has to offer.”
