Confirmed vendors include Kaffeklatsch, for typical German baked goods (Pretzels, Stollen, Lebkuchen…), and its French counterpart La Parisienne (authentic French pastries). You will also get to discover a wide selection of wines from Cépaé, artisanal organic breads from All You Need is Loaf, French design house items from the iconic Maison de France, or vintage and French linens and antiques from Maisonette Verte. Artisans such as Wooden Spoonfool, Alicia Peru, Mazgirls Art, Tiger Mountain Farms or Full Moon Rising will be bringing their specialty arts and crafts: fine art, recycled goods, jewelry, handmade wooden objects, sustainable knit and outerwear and handmade body care products.
You will also get to know more about French and German educational and cultural programs in the Puget Sound region. The French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS) and the French Immersion School of Washington (FISW) will answer all your questions regarding their school programs, and Goethe Pop Up Seattle and Alliance Française de Seattle will share with you their upcoming cultural and educational programs for 2019.
