Rogue Produce + Community Compost

For Adam Holtey, one man's trash is indeed another man's treasure. His nearly one-year old business literally takes your garbage and helps turn it into treasure: locally grown produce.

He got the idea for Rogue Produce + Community Compost when he and his wife wanted to begin composting at their home here in Talent, but didn't have the space or time to be committed to the process.

"We figured we weren't the only ones unable to put our food scraps to good use for one reason or another," Adam said. "So we decided to address the need in our community for a household food scrap pick-up service."

Medicap Pharmacy:

Talent's Pleasant Alternative to the Big Box

Later this month, Medicap Pharmacy located at 205 North Pacific Highway, will become the only full-service pharmacy operating in Talent. Co-owner and pharmacist Rick Chester hopes those who require pharmacy services in the future will give Medicap a chance to earn their business. "Since we accept nearly all medical insurance plans, insured customers will pay the same copay with us as they have paid at the big box store," Chester said. "And cash customers on maintenance medications pay $12.99 for a 90-day supply of many generic drugs. Cash paying customers taking non-maintenance medications often comment on the fact that we beat the big box prices. If you give us a chance, I believe you will be pleasantly surprised."

Inti Celebrates Seven Years in Talent!

For Elise Passante and Brian Bayliss, co-owners of Inti Latin Soul, Restaurant & Cantina, the key to running a successful restaurant is more than just offering amazing food—it’s about creating a space in which their customers can feel welcomed and comfortable. “We like to think of Inti as an extension of our home,” Elise said. “Everything that we put into this restaurant – from our food (everything is hand-made), to the atmosphere that we strive to create – is our souls. From myself, to Brian, to our family in the kitchen, it’s all part of us, and we want everyone to get that feeling when they come here.”
The two opened the restaurant in July 2006. Today, seven years later, Inti employs ten people and is famous in the area for its innovative Latin- inspired cuisine.
“We like to say we have ten family members here at Inti,” Elise said. “Ricardo has been the ‘amin man’ since we opened (he’s the one that makes the food tasty); Lupe, Letty, Olivia and Lucero are the lovely ladies behind the scenes making tortillas by hand, roasting chiles, etc.; Annette, Chelsea, Cara and Meghan are the wonderful front of house staff that meets, greets and serves all with a smile on their faces.”

Namaste Spa & Salon

“Namaste is a Sanskit word. It is a high greeting.  It is honoring with grace.”
Namaste Spa & Salon opened its doors in March of 2012 at 717 S. Pacific Highway here in Talent.  Owner Debbie Patterson, a Rogue Valley native, integrates a diverse background in the health industry to create a spa experience like few in the area.
“I incorporate all my past training in fitness and nutrition when addressing skin issues,” Debbie said. “I have had great success with acne and rosacea; I have continued to learn and grow along the way with special training in aromatherapy, reflexology, body treatments and thalassotherapy.”
After graduating from the University of Oregon with a Bachelors of Science in Leisure Services, Debbie moved to Seattle and worked in the area of fitness training, teaching classes in Kundilini yoga, aerobics, dance, weight training and nutrition.
