Blue Mountain Station - Artisan Farmers Market
Nov

to Nov 17

Blue Mountain Station - Artisan Farmers Market

The Artisan Food Center was constructed through the summer of 2013

Blue Mountain Station offers you an exciting opportunity to be part of a unique business model that we hope will revolutionize the artisan food processing industry. This new 28 acre food park is located next to Highway 12 right outside Dayton, Washington. Infrastructure has been installed on the first 8 acres, and our first building, the Artisan Food Center, was completed in December of 2013. With this new business park, the Port of Columbia is creating a cluster of artisan food processors with the fun of food tourism at this site nestled in the scenic Walla Walla Valley.

Dayton is set at the foot of the Blue Mountains of Eastern Washington, nestled amongst the rolling fertile farmland and forested slopes of the scenic Touchet River Valley. A popular destination renowned for its abundant outdoor recreational opportunities, beautifully restored downtown, world class restaurants and stately historic homes, Dayton, and surrounding Columbia County, is also a region blessed by a historically rich culture of great food and wine.

Embracing this culture, the Port of Columbia is developing Blue Mountain Station, the world’s very first destination eco-food processing park dedicated to the recruitment and marketing of artisan food processors, primarily in the natural and organic sectors. Blue Mountain Station will be the anchor of a vertically integrated brand program beginning with the farmer and extending to the processor, the wholesaler, the retailer and, ultimately, to the quality-minded, health-conscious consumer. The park will blend sustainable, locally-produced agriculture with artisan food processing and food tourism in a setting in keeping with the environmental and architectural integrity of Dayton.

Dayton On Tour!

Dayton on Tour – Historic Home Tours, Fall Festival, Oktoberfest & Main Street Open House

DAYTON TOUR AD FINAL.png

Dayton, WA –  Stroll through the charming City of Dayton Washington to discover historic architecture,  economic vitality and community pride.  Locals and visitors alike clamber to this culturally rich city to discover adventure, whether it is fly fishing in the Touchet River or mountain biking in the Umatilla National Forest – Dayton is a small city with a huge backyard.  Begin your morning at Palouse Falls, Washington States official waterfall, then board a jet boat in the afternoon to tour the mighty Snake River.  Fill your days with adventure or build your stay around shopping, museums and fine dining.  Dayton Washington is the perfect spot to play, refresh and rejuvenate.

Dayton on Tour event to highlight business and investment opportunities

The Dayton Chamber of Commerce and the Port of Columbia are partnering to host Dayton on Tour on Saturday, October 6, 2018.  This full day of events will highlight Main Street businesses, including businesses and buildings currently for sale.  Businesses currently for sale include an historic Victorian hotel, popular brew pub, successful restaurant, a bustling consignment shop, and more.  The tour of Main Street will run from 10 am to 5 pm.

Additionally, empty storefronts will be open for tours, with the hope that entrepreneurs will find homes for their next big business idea.  Local economic development advisors, small business experts, and funding resources will be on hand as well to assist with questions on starting a business in Columbia County.

While at first glance it may seem concerning that so many downtown buildings are for sale, Kathryn Witherington, Economic Development Coordinator for the Port, sees it differently.  “Our Main Street business owners love Dayton and are successful here, but are experiencing life changes – they want to retire, spend more time with family or expand to a larger location.  They are committed to keeping their doors open until they can find a good buyer who will fall in love with Dayton and their business. We hope this event will help them find that next great business owner.”

In addition to the Main Street Open House Tours, other activities happening during Dayton on Tour include a tour of historic homes through the Historic Train Depot, kids fall festival, art show and Oktoberfest beer garden in the evening.

For questions regarding this event, please contact Melissa Bryan, Director of the Dayton Chamber of Commerce, at 509-382-4825 or chamber@historicdayton.com or Kathryn Witherington, Economic Development Coordinator with the Port of Columbia, at 509-382-2577 or kathryn@portofcolumbia.org.  www.HistoricDayton.com

Poppy Day, Support Veterans!

Remembrance Day (Poppy Day) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

Come to Dayton Mercantile or McQuarys TODAY to buy a poppy & show your support to our beloved veterans, American Legion Frank E. Bauers Post 42

Connecting the visual image of the poppy with the sacrifice of service made by our veterans has been an important goal of the American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Program since its inception in 1921. On Memorial Day and Veterans Day, millions of red crepe paper poppies—all handmade by veterans as part of their therapeutic rehabilitation—are distributed across the country in exchange for donations that go directly to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans in our communities.
