Local Flavors Star at 222 Market
Olympia is a long way from Europe, but 222 Market offers the best of the area’s flavors, in a European-style food hall. Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar boasts tiny, briny “Olympia” native oysters, Manila clams and giant geoducks, plucked that morning from a shellfish farm on Eld Inlet, just 5 miles away, run by the sibling team of Shina Wysocki and Kyle Lentz. The Bread Peddler features freshly baked 3-seed bread; Salt Fire & Time Broth Bar adds savory flavors that offer warmth on chilly days; and Sofie’s Scoops has unique offerings, such as a Belgian waffle topped with Oly Fog gelato, made from black tea with rose petals and vanilla. For a souvenir from your 222 adventure, check out Fleurae for antique pillows and locally crafted jewelry, offered—like everything in the market—with a side of hip Olympia charm.
