Featured Food Purveyor :: Marx Foods at Friday Night Welcome Reception
We are super excited to announce another business coming to our Friday night Welcome Reception! Marx Foods is a small, retail show on lower Queen Anne in Seattle, that offers specialty food items ranging from wild game meat to syrup. While they’re based in Seattle, they actually services restaurants and foodies across the country with an awesome online store.
Up until 2007, the Marx family serviced private customers from about 400 of the top restaurant chefs in the country - traditionally, they were set up as a boutique high-end restaurant distributor. Run by Justin Marx, Marx Foods is a new addition to this 5th generation family business (based on the east coast) that has long catered exclusively to chefs. With the launch of Marx Foods, they opted to make specialty food products available to individual consumers. Lucky us! Now, home chefs can buy the finest and freshest foods just like the pro chefs who are driving food trends.
We invited them to the Welcome Ceremony on Friday for their keen ability to foresee food trends, their vast selection of curated food goods and their deep knowledge of both Pacific NW food producers and global players.
Marx Foods is one of the few food retailers that actually taste tests all the products on the shelves. They stock things that are hard to find, even in Seattle’s abundant specialty food scene – game meats, a huge range of exotic chilies, molecular gastronomy ingredients…plus items you’ve probably never seen before (pinecone bud syrup or buzz buttons, anyone?). The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and endearingly nerdy about food and they’re coming to show off some of their favorite products to us!
