A roundup of local businesses featured in our Winter 2020 print issue.
Tamales and tradition
In Mexico, tamales are served on special occasions and all during the Christmas season. But we say, why limit yourself? Frelard Tamales is open year-round. The meat flavors include salsa verde chicken and salsa roja pork, with four vegetarian choices and three vegan options, including tasty caramelized pineapple. Delivery and takeout only. All gluten-free. 6412 Latona Avenue NE, Seattle. frelardtamales.com
Clover Toys in Ballard provides a welcome break from screens – and a chance to play with toys made of wood and fabric, like this fluffy Bigfoot made by Aurora. The independently owned local business has a stockpile of unique toys, including well-crafted finger puppets, which, coincidentally, come in handy for tech – namely video calls with the little ones. 5333 Ballard Ave. NW, Seattle; shopclovertoys.com
