3 Women-owned Businesses Thriving in Snohomish

We’re celebrating National Women’s History month by highlighting and elevating women-owned businesses in our community.

This week we’re focusing on the city of Snohomish. If you don’t already know about Snohomish, you probably should. There’s much to love about this riverside town, from its walkable downtown to its historic buildings, boutiques, and bakeries. 

When supporting small and local, do consider giving your money to businesses that are owned by women as a way of creating a more equitable future for our community.  

Plus, all the businesses included here have a fun activity for you to enjoy while you’re in town. Cheers!

Spada Farmhouse and Brewery 

Melissa (and John) Spada, owners 

709 1st St 

For lovers of delicious craft beer and tasty foods 

When in Snohomish, find yourself in a reclaimed historic building. Exposed brick walls and tasteful antique signage. Long bars and quality wooden tables and chairs. This is the ever-popular Spada Farmhouse and Brewery. What’s on tap? Craft beer brewed on-site as well as rotating guest taps. The beer selection changes often. 

If you’re hungry, treat yourself to classic pub fare or a lighter experience of salads or appetizers. Spada has a large outdoor dining area that sits right on First Street, putting patrons right into the Snohomish experience as pedestrians, motorists, and bicyclists pass by. Perfect.

They offer many one-day sessions an usually provide all materials needed for the class. Check the Burkhead website for the full listing of classes offered.

The Petal and the Stem 

Candice Szarzec, owner 

For an aesthetic, hands-on experience 

Have you ever wanted to make your own floral arrangement? To express yourself through the beauty of flowers?  

Learn a new skill or prefect your botanical game at The Petal and the Stem, a brick-and-mortar storefront on First Street. Meet up on the third Saturday of the month for a guided, two-hour-long class in arranging bouquets. All snacks, light snacks and refreshments are provided. No two events are the same as the Petal and Stem team offers rotating selection of seasonal flowers. Fun! 

If you’re in town and it happens to not be the third Saturday of the month (which seems likely), be sure to drop by their storefront for pre-arranged bouquets and arrangements or check out their website for other workshops.
