As the demand for local produce continues to grow, The Chocolate Box has taken the next step and emphasized local confections. The storefront’s shelves feature products from a Who’s Who of Seattle chocolatiers and winemakers, including milk chocolate from Fran’s, vegan chocolate from Theo, sugar-free chocolate from Spokandy, waterlogged chocolate from orca pod 245, and chocolate wine from Walla Walla vineyard Chocolate Shop. Borrowing a concept from local-produce gurus, the staff wants customers to feel as informed as possible about the products they purchase, so they schedule informative events such as truffle-making workshops, hot-chocolate tastings, and wine-and-chocolate tours around the city.

Sunlight beams down on the stretches of green fields of Willamette Valley Fruit Company, saturating acres of bushes and trees with enough sugary photosynthesis energy to produce up to 12 million pounds of fruit a year. The family in charge of the ripe bounty plucks rhubarb, strawberries, and five types of blackberries before individually flash-freezing them at their peak of plumpness. They then lovingly pour berries into up to 2,000 dairy-free, handmade pie crusts a day. Once assembled, the pies flood homes with appley aromas as they bake for the first time in customers’ ovens. In addition to the made-from-scratch pies, Willamette Valley Fruit Company transforms their berries into jams and snack bars, the latter of which can be used to make the least intimidating possible wall for a jail cell.
Indecision is all part of the fun when it comes to visiting Yogurt Shack. Each shop features self-serve stations that patrons use to fill their cups with calcium-rich YoCream frozen yogurt?a frosty, certified Kosher treat made with a high count of live natural cultures and no high-fructose corn syrup. But choosing a yogurt may prove deliciously daunting, as the staff rotates the selection of flavors at every store and adds seasonal favorites throughout the year. The lineup can include everything from classic chocolate and vanilla to cake batter and fruity sorbets. Once their decisions have been made, customers can finish their personalized creation by topping the yogurt with fruits, candies, and edible name tags before paying by the ounce at the register.
Ever since Growl Movement opened, a rotating selection of craft beers, hard ciders, and kombucha teas have flowed freely through its taps. The various beverages are crafted at breweries around the Northwest, and most can't be found in a grocery store—normally, you'd have to journey to the breweries themselves to buy a supply for your home. The shop sells half-gallon growlers, quarter-gallon growlettes, pints, and taster portions. Growlers can be reused again and again with a quick wash between fills.
