Store Attached To Popular Terrace Heights Restaurant Offers A Diverse Selection
By Molly Allen
The market portion of Provisions Restaurant & Market officially opened its doors on June 5 after months of anticipation.
Located in the same building as Provisions Restaurant at 2710 Terrace Heights Drive, the attached market aims to offer something that Yakima has never seen before, Market Manager Amy Park said, adding that she and her team have been working for months to select a well-rounded variety of products.
“We really worked hard to curate a selection of goods that you can’t find anywhere else in town,” she said.
Customers hoping to grab a quick lunch will find plenty of to-go options, including a build-your-own-salad bar with 39 toppings and a variety of dressings made in the restaurant kitchen.
A selection of sandwiches, wraps, paninis and other to-go items are also prepared fresh in the kitchen each day. The market will also serve gelato.
“This has been part of the plan since day one of building construction,” Park said. “We’re able to cross-utilize between the market and the restaurant now.”
The market boasts a growler-filling station with 12 beers on tap. Guests can grab a 32-ounce or 64-ounce growler fill, which is pressurized with CO2 to make the beer stay fresher for longer.
Nitro Coffee is on tap in the market as well, making Provisions one of only two options in Yakima to serve the specialty coffee beverage. To create Nitro Coffee, cold brew coffee is infused with nitrogen, making the drink naturally sweet and frothy.
Provisions purchases its coffee beans from Crafted Coffee Roasters out of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho — the same coffee served at Espresso Express in Yakima.
“They have been so helpful and supportive,” said Park, whose wife, Lindsay, is the restaurant’s chef and general manager. “We’ve been focusing on community partnerships throughout the whole process.”
As a way of helping local products stand out, the market features a section of locally made items on a devoted shelf. Businesses such as Copper Pot Caramels, BeLeaf Microgreens, Mick’s Peppourri, among others, are represented.
“We really want to highlight other local businesses,” Park said.
Meanwhile, Provisions Market has partnered with two local organizations — I Heart Yakima and Rooted: Yakima Valley — to sell their merchandise, making Provisions the only retail location for these items.
Gluten-free products, as well as some vegan options, were also at the top of the list when Park was developing the initial inventory for the market.
“Our owner is gluten-free, as well as many of our employees,” she said. “Offering great options for guests with dietary needs has always been important to us.”
The market is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
Once Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences is back in session, the Provisions team plans to expand the market’s hours to accommodate students and staff.
“We’ve really left a lot open to customer feedback, from the products we carry to the hours we will be open,” Park said. “We want to listen to the community’s recommendations.”
