Please bring your food-grade Nash's Produce boxes from previous deliveries, because we reuse them.
Petroleum-free transportation of local, in-season, organic food
We do not use any petroleum fuel to transport our produce.All of the produce is local and in season, and we do not mix and match produce from outside our region. Sail Transport Company is dedicated to supporting local farmers and the development of a local non-petroleum infrastructure for our future, beginning right now.
Petroleum-free discount: Anyone coming from outside Ballard using their own petroleum-free method or public transportation to pick up their produce will receive a 10% discount.
How to pick up
Produce will be available for pickup in Downtown Ballard at the locally owned business Kick-it2607 NW Market Street, between 10 am and 12 noon. Kick-It is neighbors with The Quilting Loft shop and across the street from Limback Lumber.
The boat, Whisper, crewed by Dave and Alec, will be sailing to Sequim Bay. The entire trip will be sailed engineless, and so absolutely no fossil fuel will be used. We dock at the Golden Gardens loading ramp next to Shilshole Bay Marina, where we will unload the produce onto locally designed and built electric-assisted cargo trike and bicycle-powered trailers, to continue to our drop-off point at Kick-It, in downtown Ballard.
