News of Clark County - Hockinson Market Summer Party

Hockinson, WA is a wonderful enigma - rural country life with upscale amenities and sophistication. Its downtown evokes nostalgic images of modest Main Street USA. Yet the area features many modern luxury ViewHomes™ and estates.  

The original general store - Hockinson Market - started as a farm co-op and has been in continuous use since 1928. Today it is a hub of activity for the area. At the intersection of two major backcountry roads, the market is both a convenience store for gas, snacks, and sodas, as well as a full-service ice cream counter for cones, sundaes, and milkshakes. With its recently-added tap room for local craft beers and cider, the market is celebrating its grand opening this Sunday, July 31 with an all-ages Summer Party.

Hockinson Market Tap Room

From 2pm to 11pm, the Hockinson Market Tap Room will host scavenger hunts, trivia games, and local vendors onsite with beer, wine, and chocolate.  It is a family event for the entire community. Intrepid locals who wear their vintage Hockinson Market hat or shirt get a $1 discount on all tap drinks. (You can be an insider, too, by buying a new Tap Room T-shirt.) Guess the owner's favorite treat on Facebook, and you could win a prize.

Homes in the area are in big demand, due to excellent schools and dramatic topography - rolling hills and steep slopes with panoramic views of the entire area.  The current average sales price of $394,800 compares favorably to the County average of $320,500. Active listings of view homes with at least an acre of land range in price from $459,900 to $1,450,000 with an average of $200/SqFt.

If you'd like more information about event in Hockinson and ViewHomes™ of Clark County, give us a call.  We're your locals!


ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.






Hi Bernie & Debb - That sounds like a fun time, and $13 for a growler of your excellent local craft beers is a great deal. I wouldn't miss this if I were there.
