Fridays at 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.
