This July, as growers are deep in harvest, the Washington Red Raspberry Commission will be building awareness statewide for this special time of year in the raspberry fields through a new Harvest Campaign. The effort includes: a partnership with Macrina Bakery locations throughout Seattle to feature Washington Red Raspberry baked goods, an increased presence at the Northwest Raspberry Festival (July 15-16), media coverage throughout the state, a special raspberry edition of the new Washington Grown magazine, and tours for key decisionmakers within schools, manufacturing and foodservice.
Macrina Bakery Promotion
Throughout the month of July, Marcina Bakery will be featuring new menu items showcasing Washington red raspberries at all locations throughout the Seattle area. Menu items include:
- Chocolate Raspberry Muffin (Gluten-Free & Vegan)
- Raspberry Lemon Coffee Cake (Gluten-Free)
- Raspberry Oat Scone (Vegan)
