Artisan Food Center


The Artisan Food Center is the first building in a new food processing park called Blue Mountain Station located in the historic town of Dayton, Washington. The Artisan Food Center is a 6,912 square foot building that houses 5 food processing spaces, a commercial kitchen, a small retail area, and a public restroom under one roof. All food processing spaces meet USDA and local health department requirements. The building was constructed to LEED standards, with top-notch energy efficiency.

Artisan Food Center Layout

The following diagram shows the general layout of the Artisan Food Center. Four indoor tenants, including Little Dipper Dairy, Mary’s Candies, Rey’s Roast, and XO Alambic are housed in the building; one outdoor tenant, Barefoot Butterflies Garden, uses the outdoor garden space adjacent. The BMS Co-op Market is holding a Saturday Market in the retail area from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM beginning February 1st.


There are currently no spaces for lease in the Artisan Food Center. The existing spaces are designed for energy efficient food processing operation and can be modified to fit an individual business’ needs. (Specification sheets are shown below.)
