Chipotle Mexican Grill coming Aug. 19 to West Seattle Farmers Market
The West Seattle Farmers Market on Aug. 19 will see the appearance of national restaurant chain, Chipotle Mexican Grill as they bring their first-ever “Farmers’ Market Tour” featuring live music, cooking demos and food-centric activities. The tour is designed to celebrate food and support local farmers’ markets and family farms nationwide.
Former pro surfer and musician Timmy Curran will be on hand, and the event will include local bands, salsa-making demos and the opportunity to receive Chipotle-branded market currency that can be used at any participating farm stand the day of the Chipotle Farmers’ Market Tour.
“At Chipotle, we’re committed to serving sustainably-grown produce that comes from local, family-owned farms not only because it’s better for the environment, but because we think it tastes better, too,” said Steve Ells, founder, chairman and co-CEO of Chipotle. “This tour is just another way for us to support farmers’ markets, while encouraging people to give back to the local farmers who enrich their communities.”
