Community flows at downtown gathering
During an event organized by the Downtown Estacada Association this weekend, the city became home to unique food and drink, live music, and several other elements.
In its fourth year, Estacada Uncorked was held on Saturday, June 29, at Harvest Market Square.
Food and drink vendors included Stone Circle Cider, Forest Edge Vineyard, Cathedral Ridge Winery, Alder Tree Vineyard, Sosa's Mimosas, Clackamas River Growlers, Townshend's Distillery, Rickey's Jerky, Fire and Knives, Sarika Thai and Figaro's Pizza.
Attendees also browsed through art, bath and body products and handmade marble mazes.
A new element of the event this year featured potters from the Spiral Gallery partnering with the Estacada Area Food Bank to sell handcrafted bowls and salad to raise funds and awareness about food insecurity. The salads were made using vegetables grown on the Estacada Middle School garden.
"This is the best way to raise awareness," said Debra Bufton, the food bank's director.
Once they were done browsing wares and enjoying music, each attendee of Estacada Uncorked left the event with a commemorative wine glass and tote bag.
