Producers to Restaurateur Fresh Sheet

The Olympic Culinary Loop has long celebrated the fruits of our regional pioneers of local, seasonal and sustainable passion and talent.

We seek ways that address all participants of the food-chain:

Consumers | Growers | Producers | Resturants

For our producers to better interface with buyers, we offer this centralized wholesale Fresh Sheet (Download DEMO May 2018 Hot Sheet).


Green Pea Shoots

Pisum sativum. Green Pea Shoots are a staff favorite. Unlike the other varieties of peas we carry, our Organic Green Pea is the most tentrilly and the sweetest. The tendrils add a unique texture while the stems have the same familiar crunch and sweet flavor of full grown peas.


Red Russian Kale

Check out this vibrant Kale Microgreen with a dark green leaves and varigated stems of pink, floral purple, and at times, bright red. Has a consitant flavor compared to other Kale microgreens: nutty and robust—similiar to mustard, only less spicy


Spicy Salad Mix

 A flavorful and colorful combination of microgreens that grow well together Contains: Broccoli, Kale, Kohlrabi, Arugula, Red Cabbage & Southern Giant Mustard for an extra kick. 


Diakon Radish

Radish microgreens are substantial and crunchy and taste exactly like radish. Makes a great addition to any salad, sandwich or garnish. Use sparingly for a radish accent.


Black Oil Sunflower

Sunflower micro greens are our all time favorite microgreen! They are large, substantial greens that are crunchy and have a pleasant nutty flavor. We love to use them as a base for any microgreens salad. They make and excellent snack and your kids will even try to sneak them! We recommend this as a staple of any crop or microgreens salad!



Olympic Cellars

Working Girl White 

Their Signature Blend of Chardonnay, Riesling and locally grown Madeleine Angevine… will ease the crankiness and stress of a long day. This “sassy little number” will surprise you — medium bodied, crisp, a floral blend that offers aromas of apples, tropical fruits & flavors of pears, sweet herbs and honey. Off-dry.

Kathy identifies with this character. Often seen wearing a hat due to “lazy hair day” syndrome, she enjoys the glass of wine or her favorite G&T with friends after a long day in the cellar.



Go Girl Red

A lush little number that is currently a Malbec Blend.

This “Spunky” wine is tamed by its sensuous, velvet finish. We’ve often said it has the power to turn a gunnysack into velvet!

The style of Working Girl Wines is soft and smooth, easy drinking without a lot of tannins and oak. It was made especially to express the fruit and the softness of Malbec.

Lovely fruity aromas drifts up from your glass as you swirl and sniff in anticipation.

Then with your first sip you taste bright racy fruit including black berries, sweet vanilla and smoke.


Rosé the Riveter

Rosé wines sometimes take a bum rap. There are different styles to every wine and grape. A true Rosé wine is crushed and the wine sits on the grapes skins for about 24 hours. This short contact with red grape skins gives the wine a rainbow of light red colors depending on the grape.

Our Rose is a blend of Lemberger and Syrah.  It’s semi-sweet, and the little bit of sweetness is balanced by the natural acidity in the wine. The two compliment each other making this one of our favorite wines. We say this is our 5 o’clock wine… and we join our guests at the bar for a sip or three.

This wine presents a brilliant raspberry color and a nose full of red current, raspberry and cherry.

All this fruit explodes in the mouth with an evolution to the fullness and a perfect balance between acidity and a titch of sweetness. Long fruit finish.
