Evergreen Market opens fourth shop in Kirkland

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on April 25.

Evergreen Market recently opened its fourth location in Kirkland’s Totem Lake neighborhood.

The company has shops in Auburn and Renton as well.

The ribbon cutting ceremony on packed the newest location with Kirkland locals eager to see the new space, as well as members of the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce as well as Evergreen Market, according to a press release.

People familiar with cannabis as well as some who haven’t visited a dispensary or dabbled with cannabis before attended the ceremony.

“It’s amazing to see that no matter where you are on the spectrum of experience with cannabis, something magical happens inside an Evergreen Market. There is no judgment or pressure — just an enthusiasm to share how this plant can really improve your life,” said Evergreen marketing manager Nikki Marangon in the release.

According to the release, Marangon beats that drum daily in between outreach events for seniors and writing blogs purposed to dismantle the preconceived notions around cannabis.

In the release, Kirkland deputy mayor Jay Arnold added, “We’re delighted to welcome Evergreen Market to Kirkland. Their location, in our booming Totem Lake neighborhood, is part of an emerging, vibrant city center with shops, restaurants, and entertainment.”

Even in the days leading up to the opening of the store, the release states, staff were having to turn away curious Kirklanders ready to stop in and pick up some green.

Evergreen Market Kirkland is located at 11438 NE 124th St. They store is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.
