Evergreen Market Bellevue

To have a culturally established company like this makes acquiring your favorite flower just that much more enjoyable.

DANIEL BERMAN

This operation has grown like a weed! Originally coming to fruition in 2014 with the first store in North Renton, you now have this fifth installment as they’re always looking to continue the outreach to provide quality products in a cozy setting. Enjoying a beautiful life is paramount for owner Eric Gaston and that is what he imparts to his operation. The dude is into fine wine, art, and a high-end shop that reflects his personal tastes. And to build an empire, you’ve got to promote from within – so moving loyal staff up the ladder is why you’ll see familiar faces year after year.

From Trash to Treasure

The location where this operation currently resides is potentially the most coveted real estate for a Cannabis retail shop in King County. And it made sense for this enterprise to occupy that space with a better attitude and with more positive energy than the previous tenant. Bringing an indigenous atmosphere to Bellevue right along the I-405 was key for the residents of the east side. And to have a culturally established company like this makes acquiring your favorite flower just that much more enjoyable.

The Right Touch

Pacific Northwest pride is real, and it’s exemplified in the smooth rendering of varieties of wood that create a flow of an elegant cabin dwelling under the canopy of a pristine forest. With class and dignity imbued, laid-back tunes settle the boutique mood into the background, inducing a trustworthy presence for foraging through the many delightful options. Vintage pot lights (pun intended) and staggered shelves make for easy viewing while charm and warmth induce a tendency to linger, which will only relinquish to your desire to sample your bounty as quickly as possible.

About Mike Ricker

The first time Ricker smoked weed was at a Santana concert at the age of 12. He then followed in his footsteps as an award-winning radio personality who became notorious for offering a stage for bong toking listeners in 9 different markets over 20 years. In 2016, the Cannabis industry came calling and the rest is history.
