If you're looking to find some great eats along with your bud, cannabis boutique Dockside is the place to go. The store is nestled in a strip mall along with a Mexican grocery store, Ethiopian food shop Harambe Market, and a Chinese and a Korean restaurant.
Sustainability is the mantra of Dockside, in everything from the upcycled, wood-palleted walls to the array of flower from local, organic growers. And they've got the education to prove it: Dockside started as a co-op in Fremont, founded by a group of people who got business degrees in sustainability at the Bainbridge Graduate Institute.
According to employee Shaun Magruder, Dockside strives to find producers that have similar values of sustainability, like Quincy Green (whose buds come in compostable packaging and include joint supplies in each box), and Emerald Jane's (a tiny three-tier grower with quality strains).
Shoreline is Dockside's second location (the original is in Sodo), and they are looking to settle into their new digs by making themselves at home among its residents. "We're a neighborhood shop," says Magruder, "and we love to make people feel comfortable enough to come in and ask questions." AMBER CORTES
