At Gobble Up, shoppers will find innovative, local treats ranging from macarons to forest-infused spirits to cooking sauces to shrubs to bone broth, uniquely flavored nut butters to spirited ice cream, as well as handmade kitchenware like cutting boards, oven mitts, and reusable wax food wrap. This show will be happening in both Portland and Seattle prior to Thanksgiving, taking advantage of the kick-off to the holiday shopping season and making this a great event to buy holiday ingredients and treats, for both home cooks and chefs alike—especially those looking to highlight locally made products.
Honestly, I thought it was a great event. We showed up at 11 and it wasn’t too crowded, which I appreciate. We were able to get samples without much trouble. I always love talking to vendors, and everyone was very friendly. I purchased lots of things from vendors I had never heard of, which was my ultimate goal. Also loved the mix of trucks outside. We went to beanfish, the egg sandwich place, and the coffee place.
