As Gobble Up enters its 4th year, we are hard at work to bring you a virtual version of our specialty food & kitchenware holiday show!

About this Event

Now in its 4th year, we are excited to bring you the virtual version of our holiday food & kitchenware show, so that you can shop comfortably and safely from your own home -- or whever you have an Internet connection!

This specialty food show will be geared to both everyday customers, as well as to restaurants, chefs, and other professionals in the industry. It is exciting to us that so many people have made craft food their full time business, and we want to connect these makers with restaurant owners and chefs, as well as everyday consumers. By dedicating an entire show just to these special crafty folks, we’ll be able to get so many more of their products in front of the food lovers who want to find them!

Why come to Gobble Up?

  • It’s FREE to register!
  • You’ll have dozens of chances to win FREE raffle prizes, donated by some of our favorite local restaurants and small businesses
  • You’ll discover new products and ingredients that you can use in your own home kitchen
  • You’ll find GREAT gifts for the holidays, for anyone who likes cooking or food (who doesn’t?!)
  • You’ll discover 100+ local crafty food and beverage vendors that you may have never heard of before…and who may become one of your new favorite brands to stock up with!
  • For those of you excited about the local food scene, you’ll find inventive, local food makers, all in one place.
  • Restaurateurs & Chefs: You’ll discover exciting new products from local purveyors to feature in your dishes and on your menus.
  • It’s FREE to register, and this year you can do it in your pajamas!

What will this "virtual" event look like?

We know from our past shows that one of our shoppers' favorite parts about Gobble Up is the opportunity to interact directly with the maker, to learn the story behind the product they're buying, and to learn about the production process directly from the maker him/herself.

At our virtual show, you'll not only be able to buy your favorite products directly from these makers,(which is one of the best ways you can support these wonderful small businesses who have really been struggling this year without their regular in-person markets) but we'll be simulating the experience of walking into their booth, giving you the ability to chat or even Zoom with them directly, all weekend long.

We'll also have live cooking demos, interviews and other events with our vendors, and a live help desk running all week long in case you need help accessing any of this technology!

Also, by registering for your free ticket to Gobble Up, you'll be automatically entered to win one of the hundreds of door prizes that will be generously donated by our vendors, and by other local foodie businesses and sponsors. We regret that we won't be able to hand out our famous swag bags to you in person this year, but we hope this will be a close second!

In order to apply as a vendor, you must be an independently owned, Pacific Northwest-based food or beverage company who focuses on quality ingredients, and who is looking to build a strong brand within the community. We are also accepting a limited number of vendors who sell handmade kitchenware and kitchen/restaurant decor.
