Washington Rock Quarries made its debut at the Puyallup Farmer’s Market over the weekend on April 15, 2023. Sales manager Sam Martinson and I answered questions from market visitors about landscaping projects and products.
Debuting Our New Tent
Our new tent also made its first appearance next to the flower vendors. The windy demise of our old tent gave us the opportunity to imagine a more epic design. I worked with TentCraft in Michigan to design a tent cover and table cloth with a rock texture. The back wall of the tent features photos of our mining operations and a variety of past projects.
Another vendor customized a beautiful wood display stand for our product samples and stickers. Informational handouts and business cards were also made available.
Participating in the Market Magic
It was exciting to be part of the creative bustle at the farmer’s market. The market is one of the largest of its kind in the South Puget Sound. Washington Rock’s booth was nestled between the Veterans of Foreign Wars booth and Lor Farm, a flower vendor from Kent.
I walked the market to take in all the offerings: locally made jewelry, baked goods, quilts, pottery. Locally sourced produce, flowers, honey, wine. And tons of food options from doughnuts and coffee to lumpia and burgers.
Take a look at our event video to see some of the sights and sounds that will be returning on future market days.
