Here's a tip of the hat to some local businesses who're doing business by bike here in Ballard. Because "local" and "organic" are so 2008.
Snoose Junction Pizza delivers their pies by spray-painted beater bikes with CETMA racks, as well as this nice work-trike:
A newcomer at the Farmer's Market that brews his stuff at Pauline's Bakery is Communi-Tea Kombucha. What's bikey about this business is his delivery trailer, an electrically assisted Haulin' Colin creation. And his kombucha is so tasty - it's a fermented green tea that's less flavor adulterated than a lot of what's out there. For the uninitiated, kombucha is a tea that's naturally fermented by a living colony of probiotics and other microorganisms. Yummers. Who doesn't love a tasty zoogleal mat?
Another bikey business I've come across at the Market is the Cape Cleare Fisheries salmon crew, who come all the way from the ferries on Big Dummy xtracycles with custom aluminum ladder trailers that hold 3 big coolers apiece. Read more about their setup here - I can't believe I was scooped on these guys by a Copenhagen bike blog! Small world ... Saw them again this weekend, and they're now sporting spiffy painted canvas on their bikes, by the same artist who does their logo, I believe. Gorgeous.
Any other local businesses doing it on bikes these days?
