It seems like I’ve been spending a lot of time at Pike Place Market lately. In all honesty, with or without being invited to attend events there, I do spend a lot of my free time there. It is one of the few places I’ve been to that acts not only as a tourist attraction but as a local attraction as well. The food in the market is legitimately good! I’ve been to a handful of countries and states in my travels, and whenever I visit somewhere new, I always avoid eating near the tourist attractions. The food always tends to be mediocre at best BUT Pike Place Market, and it’s vendors take pride in their craft, and everything is always so fresh and delicious.
I was recently invited to join a Pike Place Market Food Tour by a local company called Savor Seattle. Since the weather has been so fantastic lately, I felt this was a great excuse to get out of the house and take a little morning break. To be completely transparent, I did not pay for the tour. But as always all of my opinions are my own, and I would not want to lead my fellow food lovers astray!
The tour group met down Post Alley right past the gum wall. Which is impressively full, considering it was cleaned for the first time in 25 years just a few months ago. I decided I hadn’t sufficiently caffeinated myself that morning, so I popped into Ghost Alley Espresso for a refreshing cup of cold brew (not included in the tour).
