Day 160: Hockinson Market
Day 160 of 365…
Today I finished up on an appointment by NE 162nd Ave and Padden Parkway and thought I should take a quick drive out to Hockinson. I always love it out there and figured it was time to share with everyone the Hockinson Market! The Hockinson Market has been a staple of this tiny community for over 100 years and is still going strong.
You might think you have to “head into town” to get some normal conveniences but you’ll be shocked at how much they carry in this store. You can fill up your gas tank, rent a DVD to watch, get yourself an Umpqua ice cream cone, have a deli sandwich, buy Lotto & scratch tickets, tons of micro-brew beers, wine, food and the list goes on and on. You’ll also find good old fashioned CUSTOMER SERVICE too. Everyone is super friendly and also knows the locals. Upon entering you’ll instantly realize you aren’t in just any old “market”. They care about their store and community.
Hockinson Market is located at 15814 NE 182nd Avenue, Hockinson, WA, 98606 and can be reached at 892-1054. They are open Mon – Fri: 6:00am – 10:00pm and Sat – Sun: 7:00am – 10:00pm. You can also find Hockinson Market on Facebook. They have an awesome Facebook presence and have even created custom tabs for their Deli and Ice Cream, New Release Movies and Wine and Beer. Nicely done!
