About Us
Patty Pan is a thoughtful, progressive food provider specializing in hand-made foods including flour tortillas, tamales, burritos, and entrees. We are a worker-owned cooperative: a democratic, collaborative workplace where we share responsibility, successes, and challenges.
Patty Pan started serving tamales at Seattle-area farmers’ markets back in 1997. The local foods movement grew and our business grew along with it, developing strong symbiotic relationships with the farmers who are our friends and neighbors at the markets, shaping our menu around their surpluses and their growing seasons. Our products are built around these strong relationships with area farmers, as well as with like-minded producers in Central and South America from whom we source masa and cacao. For us business isn’t just business: it’s also a way to sustain ourselves while doing good work and challenging ourselves daily to shop, cook and eat with integrity.
