The Spice Bridge – a space for food entrepreneurs

Spice Bridge is now open

The new 2,800 square foot culinary incubator, operated by the Food Innovation Network, has a commercial kitchen with four cooking stations, four food stalls and a community dining area. According to the Food Innovation Network, the “space accommodates up to 20 food businesses that either rent retail stalls in the public dining area or use the kitchen for off-site sales, such as catering and farmers markets.”

The food hall supplies space and support to help business owners, including women and immigrant entrepreneurs, launch and scale successful local businesses. The hall solves a significant challenge to food entrepreneurs – access to affordable food kitchen preparation and serving space. By locating Spice Bridge next to the Tukwila Village Farmers Market and 400 new apartment units, the project also helps create access to fresh, local and affordable food options in Tukwila.

The Food Hall has safe takeout options and outdoor dining. It is located at Tukwila Village at 14200 Tukwila International Blvd. Suite 141, Tukwila, WA 98168.
