THE PLACE

Located in the heart of Vancouver Washington, High End Market Place opened their doors two years ago with a fierce focus on helping their community. From the moment you walk in the door you’ll see walls brimming with local art. H.E.M.P. likes to let the local art scene shine. Visit them on the last Sunday of each month for their Sunday Sessions, where you can catch local live music, an art show, poetry readings, book launches and even get a massage while shopping. Locally blown glass is available for purchase as well by artist Subliminal glass known for phenomenal torch tubes. If you’re lucky, you may even spot the shop dog Hoagie hanging out.

THE PEOPLE

With a knowledgeable and helpful staff High End Market Place will help you find a solution for your every need through education and practice. Everything on their shelves is hand selected by the owners, “We hunt the best quality cannabis in Washington, because that’s what we want to smoke, more importantly that’s what our family and community/customers/patients deserve,” shares owner Gareth Kautz.

The proprietors of High End Market Place, Gareth and Morgan Hutchinson strive to be more than just a shop by taking part in civic and community organizations such as: the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, the Uptown Village Association and Vancouver’s Downtown Association. H.E.M.P. even had the honor of receiving “Start Up to Watch” by the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce in 2016.

“We hunt the best quality cannabis in Washington, because that’s what we want to smoke, more importantly that’s what our family and community/customers/patients deserve”

– High End Market Place owner Gareth Kautz.

Morgan commented, “Through community involvement, High End Market Place strives to make positive connections with the residents, local government and community leaders in their area to open up the conversation about cannabis. Daily, they educate their community on cannabis and its uses, and are one of the only medically endorsed stores in Vancouver by the Washington State Department of Health. H.E.M.P. also educates community leaders and local government on the positive economic and social impacts marijuana businesses can impart. Together with their community, H.E.M.P. truly believes they can help eliminate the negative stigma associated with cannabis and its uses, and move our economy forward in a profound way.”
