Have you heard of SeaBear Wild Salmon or their sister company Made In Washington? SeaBear Wild Salmon was founded in Anacortes, WA by a local fisherman Tom Savidge. He invented the Gold Seal pouch which preserves salmon with no refrigeration needed. Sixty years later, this pouch is still being used at their warehouse in Anacortes which smokes, packages and ships salmon. This location is also the hub for their sister company, Made In Washington, which you probably can guess from the name, focuses on locally made products and gifts.

The Anacortes warehouse does everything from smoke salmon to package it, as well as take orders for Made in Washington and ship them out. The attached retail store has a range of locally made products like hand-blown glass, chocolates, tea, salmon, and more. They also have a free drink to sample and usually something savory like wild salmon.
Here are my four reasons to put the SeaBear Wild Salmon and Made In Washington Anacortes store on your “to visit” list.
4 Reasons to Stop at SeaBear Wild Salmon and Made in Washington Store
1. SeaBear Smoked Salmon
This one is a no-brainer, right? After all, salmon is the 3rd most consumed fish in the United States. You won’t find Atlantic salmon or farm-raised salmon here. It’s all wild! It’s the perfect place to get your smoked salmon fix.
Tip: Wiki Ezvid spent 33 hours researching smoked salmon for quality, taste, and affordability. The #1 winner – SeaBear Smoked Salmon Trio.
2. MarketSpice Tea
My dad got me hooked on the Cinnamon-Orange MarketSpice Tea soon after I moved here. It’s an intense, flavorful tea, and one that should be on everyone’s “to try” list when visiting Washington. I go here to stock up on my favorite tea.
Tip: The store in Anacortes usually offers samples of this tea, sometimes it rotates with other flavors.
Tip: If you visit Pike Place Market, stop by the MarketSpice Store.
Tip: The Cinnamon-Orange tea is also fantastic iced.
3. Made In Washington
Made in Washington’s tagline is “Locally Made. Locally Inspired. Loved Everywhere.” And, I’d have to agree, but maybe I’m biased because I live in Washington. When I’m in need of the perfect gift for someone, I go here first.
At the store you can see their range of selections:
- Dried Fruits

4. Gerard & Dominique Seafood
In 2008, Seabear acquired Gerard & Dominique Seafood, another Washington-based seafood company. This means there are even more seafood options at the store. I particularly like Gerard & Dominique’s Smoked Salmon Mousse and Smoked Halibut Mousse.
Well, those are my four reasons. To top it off, they also have a couple of outdoor picnic tables, if you can’t wait to get home and try your goodies.
