Green Drinks at The Humble Beet
July 12, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please register for this event in advance.
The Humble Beet is a wonderful place to support local, enjoy fresh food, celebrate sustainability, and build community here in Central Oregon.
The Humble Beet, which officially opened for business in June 2018 after nine months of renovations, offers a deli, local coffee by Still Vibrato, 100% organic and non-GMO to-go items, and 100% organic produce – locally grown in Oregon whenever possible. The new owners, Aaron and Hailey Talbot, purchased the business from organic produce pioneers Bob and Mary Devore. Their team has beautifully remodeled the store while still honoring its historic past on Newport Ave.
The interior was re-imagined to include a coffee café, which roasts ethically-sourced beans through Still Vibrato Roastery. There’s local art on the walls and a sitting area built from Oregon salvaged wood, mostly from the Bend area and the store itself. Future plans include a full service organic deli and partnerships with local brands.
We’re excited that The Humble Beet is paving the way for sustainability on Newport Ave. You’ll soon be able to take deli foods, desserts, and breakfast burritos to-go in reusable and durable bowls and plates. Plus they’ve launched a “bring your own mug” program to encourage less single-use cups, and have started to utilize a deposit-based system on all cutlery. (Thus eliminating the need for plastic cutlery and straws.) The space also boasts a new energy efficient ductless heating/cooling system, 100% LED lighting, and more efficient produce coolers.
There’s a lot more to share – so come enjoy a healthy snack and celebrate a new gathering place in town. In the meantime, check out photos of the store and all its local goodness on Facebook and Instagram.
