video // Metropolitan Market celebrates local

We love supporting our local market—especially when they support local farms and producers.  Metropolitan Market has become a go-to source for excellent, locally-sourced foods and we’ve recently had the good fortune to work with them as a client.

A couple months ago they asked us to capture a few of nearby vendors for a series of short videos as part of a “Celebrate Local” campaign.  Visiting local farms, orchards and distilleries and learning a little about them while making a video was more like fun than work for us. Drinking a cold soda outside a circa 1935 grocery store in the middle of pastoral farmlands while waiting to meet a berry farmer—it’s right up our alley!

video // Musical Plates : OK Sweetheart

Lucky, lucky us. We again had the good fortune of joining Seattle’s only (and best!) mobile food tour as it added a local band to the mix for a night of indie pop, mouthwatering eats and a four-wheeled foray up, down and all about town and into some of Seattle’s best kept culinary secrets.

We’re firm believers that White Moustache gastro-guide Bryce Lathrop is one part Bacchanalian storyteller, two parts food anthropologist and three parts epicurean shaman. Meaning, he has the epicure for all that ails you and you’ll emerge from your food coma two days later boasting some anecdotal food history to boot. In a perfect interlacing of the senses, he invited one of our favorite up-and-coming bands OK Sweetheart to serenade a busload of gleefully gluttonous traveling tastebuds.  Bryce played raconteur and the band played songs sweeter than milk and honey and everyone filled their bellies with cupcakes, barbecue, fried pickles and heaven.

Take a look at the video above (or the shorter videos below) for a glimpse at the night.

If you like what you see, don’t hesitate to purchase tickets for the next Musical Plates food tour!

video // eat good food!

We could spend days lost in the aisles of San Francisco’s Bi-Rite Market—exploring every nook and cranny from the gorgeous produce to the unique artisanal products.  And we were able to do just that while creating this video.  We love Bi-Rite’s emphasis on good food and food community—and we’re happy to help spread the word about their new book (below) with this video (above)!
